Although my realist sculptures are normanrockwellishly obvious, I added a layer of audio to many of the pieces in an effort to imbue the sculptures with some sense of consciousness. I shamelessly admit I am telling you what to think about what is presented. Each piece deals with the most basic emotions, thoughts and concepts that make us human- life, love, loss, lust, power, money, religion, hatred, fear, ignorance and mortality.
Structurally, the pieces are sculpted from polyurethane- most are cast solid- with a stainless steel armature where needed. I paint my pieces with acrylics that wed to the plastic poly perfectly. The sculptures are extremely durable and very simple to assemble as the components are keyed together and literally sit atop each other. Pieces that have an audio component are battery powered and will talk for decades before battery replacement. They all have concealed on/off switches and motion sensors. When the sculpture is turned on unless the piece is speaking- it will consume no power. The batteries are standard D cell batteries and are easily replaced.
Many of my sculptures are multiples. I design, sculpt, paint and assemble each piece personally. Multiples keep the cost down while satisfying market demands.
I have never had a W-2. Everything I have ever made and sold has gone directly to the hands of the buyer from my hands. I have never consigned or been represented by anyone other than myself. Not to say that could not change, but I doubt it ever will.
I am making the most important figurative sculpture today and I believe everyone will recognize some aspect of themselves in my pieces. I call them everyman sculptures. I am seeking those collectors that admire and collect realist figurative sculpture they feel is representative and will be valued by the culture though time.
Some of the sculptures can be delivered in days, others months. Some are already assembled, others I have all the components but they will not be assembled until ordered. Other pieces are in various stages of completion. Most pieces have a custom pedestal designed for them. When a piece is purchased, the pedestal will be shipped before the sculpture so the pedestal can be located in the desired location and the sculpture can be placed in position with a minimum of handling.
