Showing your work

Postby denisgrace » Sun May 08, 2011 9:44 am

This site is open to all figurative sculptors and if you would like your work displayed in the contemporary gallery section just let me know.

I can take the images off of your website or Facebook page or you can send them to me at denisgrace@comcast.net It would be nice to have a photo of you and a short bio but that is optional.

This is a "Labor of Love" designed to promote our cause, the figurative sculpture movement, so there is no cost.

If you would like to recommend someone for the "Living Master" category send me those names and at regular intervals the current "living masters " will choose from those names. (more information in the "About us" section of this site. )

This is great I think classical and figurative sculpture need to be revived. I have a small site to show some of my stuff. I've just started sculpting and don't even have a year under my belt, but this is my passion and I will continue to follow it. My site is metalmans.net

I can see this is a new site, thus not much going on. I hope to be able to help change that since I think figurative sculptures need a separate site like this one. With sculptors like Richard McDonald inspiring young artists (and not so young as well) to turn to figurative art, I feel than many more artists will be looking for a site like this. I feel that a kind of modern figurative art will always be popular. Figurative appeals to all tastes-- once again, if done well.

My intro:

At a very early age, I studied under some locally important artists in New Mexico (one who has a "School of" title) and was the assistant for around 7 years to an artist who made 2 full sized bronze sculptures of dinosaurs who were very large 18X20 feet in one case, and cast at Shidonii, and Wasatch Bronze (as well as many more in Fiberglas). I was a full time sculptor at that time, between the ages of 22, and 30. I won an prize normally given to architects, studied art at the University of New Mexico, and then had to deal with the real world of bill paying and so on. I also never made enough money to gain access to bronze again. So there is a very large gap in my resume. Many years went by. Too many. After working at a place for 10 years, I was suddenly "let go" in the worst part of the recession, and had to make some major decisions about how I was to begin living my life over again. I decided to become a sculptor again; to start at the bottom. It has been slow going, and I am beginning some human figures now. My finished pieces are now in Bronze. This is not a human figure but it is a sample of the work I am doing now. I wanted to maintain my drawing style, and work in a kind of easy loose fashion. I love motion and animation. I would like to produce sculpture that tells a story, even though the story might be something personal to me.

At the moment, my output is small. I must still work to survive, and don't have all that much time for art. Galleries have been very nice to me. I have not been rejected by any I asked, but I am waiting to get about 10 pieces together before approaching a really good gallery.

Maybe someone can answer this? What is the typical output for a sculptor? My pieces take me about 45 days to sculpt. Much of this is because of the time it takes to go to my "day job." I feel I would be Lucky to sculpt 10 a year. This year, I feel I would be lucky to produce 5. That might be slow, but I simply must make sure that I am accurate with the muscles and so forth. Even so, In some cases, I fall flat and am always on the look for mental laziness. (Yes, I am something of a perfectionist, and I am my own worst critic).

These are my most recent finished sculptures (as you can see, they are not human figures). With some luck, the next one I will put up will be a human.

C.R. I can relate to your concern about productivity and managing the cost. In bronze, I generally could only sculpt 1-2 sculptures a year. I've switched to clay just because I can work so much faster with the limited amount of time I have. I can always choose to cast in bronze if the clay is particularly successful.

Thanks for the reply-- as I said, not much going on here-- I m kind of dissapointed-- hope you come back! Anyway, this year, I have done 2 bronzes, and am working on a third. I have, actually a few more ready to go, but I am new at this, so I don't have much of a body of work. I have been working with a local foundry, and they charge about 5 dollars more per pound of bronze than a place in Colorado. I pay the price because I know the cost of "inspection" visits and shipping, would eat up any benefit from the saved money. It does you no good to save 200 dollars if you are spending 400 dollars more, if you know what I mean.

A man I know likes my work and is paying for the casting costs of another sculpture, with the agreement that when I sell it he will get his costs back. He's not buying the sculpture, he just wants me to succeed, so he is investing in my future.

I'm pretty lazy about showing my work. My studio is large, but still, how much sculpture can it hold? I do a variety of work: some figurative.
