Re: Big names in contemporary figurative sculpture

Hi Arnis and Djongarski,
Bulgarian seems a very interresting language but I am afraid no one but you is able to understand. So would you please translate what may concern the community and pursue your conversation in private?
Thank you.

Re: Big names in contemporary figurative sculpture

Are you categorizing these sculptors? If so, you may have a list that I need to observe. I will have the sculptors posted on my website soon. It is being worked on right now. The Website is MASA66.net. Wait until Feb 10th.

Re: Big names in contemporary figurative sculpture

Dear Saundra Hough,

Please have a look at my sculpture works. I can't say I am a big name in sculpture... Only eight letters!
But I am a contemporary figurative sculptor.
Working in the sculpture field for thirty years, I have known numerous figurative sculptors who created works that far surpass those mentioned above. Many have passed on or never got into the limelight. Unfortunately we only have their works to remember them by.
Don't be confused with fame and quality!

Ciao!

Re: Big names in contemporary figurative sculpture

I go to the Art Expo at the Javitts Center in NY (I realize how commercial that is), but I've come across a couple of great figurative sculptors. One is Paige Bradley, another is a Vietnamese guy whose last name is Tuan, and my favorite is an orthopedic surgeon named Robert MacArthur. There is a thread about him under "art lounge". Here are two of his works-

Re: Big names in contemporary figurative sculpture

I have not noticed the name of Peter Schipperheyn from Australia. I also note that most of these names are modelers, ie using clay as oppossed to carving in wood or stone. There is a very big difference in my mind between the act of putting on or off of a piece of clay and the definitive removal of material. Givern an amature, a human model lots of us can do a good job of copying what is in front of us. But stand before a block of stone with no model and carve the same piece, now that is a challenge!
