Holly Crocker Garcia

Although sculpting is my profession, I have always had a deep love and appreciation for the ballet. As a young girl I studied at the Joffrey Ballet School in New York and at two Connecticut ballet academies. In California I was fortunate enough to sculpt members of the Oakland Ballet and later Paloma Herrera, principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre in New York City. To me, ballet is an art form which is incredibly rich in beauty and emotion, all expressed through the exquisite line of the human body. In contrast to the lyricism of dance, I also sculpt classical figures in more quiet, introspective attitudes. After working intensely on a dance piece, I am ready for a restful figure study, and then again for the fluidity of dance. I believe there could not be a more ideal vehicle for artistic expression than the human form with its infinite possibilities of gesture, facial expression and movement . Whether dramatic and compelling or subtle and beautiful, all emotions can be conveyed in the eloquent medium of figurative sculpture.
