Jack Hill - All of my sculptural work is bronze, cast in the "lost wax" technique. Besides sculpting the original work, I am hands on with all the phases of the casting process, including the molds, waxes, metal, and application of the patinas. My foundry experience allows me to ensure the quality and integrity of each idea, from inspiration to final presentation. The ideas are born from observation of the human existence, in all its splendor and absurdity. The addition of my own whimsy and uncommon approach brings about an expression of life in the permanence of bronze. People are only one part of the whole planet and my anthropomorphic works are an exploration of the blending of man into various parts of the environment. With attention to anatomic detail and a tongue-in-cheek twist I wish to stimulate the imagination and, maybe, tickle the funny bone. Questions? Call me at 305/240-3238 A new line of work has been added that I call "Body Armor". The human form is treated as if skin was an armor that could be put on or removed as needed. If it had been lost long ago and recently rediscovered, what would it look like. ...
Don Smalley - This man does not use the spoken language as a medium for communication. His world, his word, his art and his mind are expressed in the body of stones. Years ago he heard the Buddhist phrase "Only don't know!" These words, which in Buddhism might be called a turning phrase, point to the awakening of the non-conceptual mind. This state of mind seems to have opened within Don a state of truth and spontaneity- without formal teachings in Buddhism or any other spiritual discipline. He does not want the conceptual mind interfering with the creative process, or with the mysterious ground of direct understanding that informs his sculpture. Each moment, each work can thus be approached with an open and clear mind. Don does not want his work and his experience to be characterized by language, yet in direct conversation with that which is immediately before him. He enters into a dialogue with stone. Don quietly speaks of times of struggle, and grants that these times have given him determination and strength, turning him towards his own interior consciousness. His ease with solitude and his sense of self-sufficiency have fostered in him an atmosphere of stillness and ...
Robert Pulley - A friend told me recently that it was helpul for her to know how an art work is created and how the artist thinks. That led me to consider what I have to say about my art work. When one looks at my sculpture I hope one sees strength, mystery, sensuousness, spiritual energy and more. How these constructions in modeled clay can stir such responsed in myself and others is a mystery to me, but I can say something about my methods and way of thinking. I have always been intuitive, reactive and spontaneous. I love improvisation, expression and the power of chance and serendipity. This may not seem obvious in large pieces that must be carefully crafted over weeks or months. Here is how it works. When I began the first pieces in this body of work many years ago they were purely improvisational. I would begin each piece with a flat slab of clay that I cut into a shape that would be the bottom of the sculpture. I usually had a vague idea of the proportions I wanted. This general notion set the theme within which I worked. In the manner of free jazz I would consider ...
Jacques Malo - A native of Cap de la Madeleine, Jacques Malo began his studies in fine arts at College and the University of Quebec at Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada. During these years of training, he further explores the materials and assembly techniques of modern sculpture. In 1982 my artistic journey really took off, going away more and more of domination and the influence of my teachers of fine arts. The importance I attach to the spontaneity in the creative process was problematic in sculpture. Then I began to make an approach using Styrofoam as a material and the technique of direct carving, allowed me to shape volumes with a gesture so eager to be possible in size, the images arose in my mind. To get a solid finish and acceptable, I used the fibreglass, resin and paint spray. This artistic journey was the subject of my solo exhibition at the Imagier, gallery of art in Aylmer in 1984. The event'Sculptors at work' allowed me to explore other material, marble. Always with the technique of direct carving, I began to explore this area in order to truly know its challenges and achieve more, to measure my ability to overcome such material. ...
Zoja Trofimiuk - Artist's Statement Volume and Space are concepts that have influenced my art. I am particularly fascinated by their appearance in the human body. I am interested in exploring dialogue: both internal dialogue, which exists within oneself, and external connection that moves between two people or objects. My art explores "contradictions" which are attracted to each other and create a new whole. The human figure appeals to me as an adequate form for expressing these ideas. Working with glass has given me the opportunity to stretch the boundaries of these concepts to new limits, as well as offering me the joyful experience of playing with colour. I would like to concentrate my attention on capturing absence, an impression, commemorate memory, fleeing presence, give physical form to a spiritual value. The absence transferred into visual terms, long after it ceased to exist. In both instances, when working with bronze or glass, I apply a casting technique called "Lost Wax". ...
