It will be “A Season of Sculpture” at Artetude Gallery this month. Featured will be works by three internationally recognized sculptors.
Robert Winkler says of his sculptures, “My works begin as ideas based on form, volume, and balance. At each stage of development, the exploration of light and shadow and the push against the force of gravity describe the tension of the human experience, the conflict between the limitations imposed by our individual histories, and the ability of our minds to imagine other possibilities.”
Amy Medford’s sculptures bring out the natural qualities of the materials she uses, and communicate the subtleties of interpersonal relationships. She graduated with a degree in theatre history from Cornell University, and went on to earn an apprenticeship at the Johnson Atelier Technical Institute for Sculpture in New Jersey. It was there she mastered the “lost wax” technique of bronze casting.
Leonid Siveriver’s creations evoke a powerful visual language that is inspired by ritual objects from ancient cultures. The iridescent sheen on his sculptures is the result of an unpredictable, and therefore exciting, process that is reminiscent of the original Japanese raku tradition.
