Sandy Graves

My abstract work came from my very first experience casting in Bronze.  My college professor wanted a hollow form to use in demonstrating the lost wax process.  I worked from my memory sculpting parts and pieces of the horses that I grew-up around and put them together to make a hollow form.  Come to find out, the process was not a traditional means of bronze sculpture. My naivety had allowed me the freedom to simply create without rules.

After years of sculpting the figure in the classic style I returned to stylized work for the joy that it allows.  I enjoy the energy, movement, and whimsical nature that these pieces achieve.  They allow the personalities of the horses and other animals that I sculpt to come alive!  I am mostly concerned with the overall compositions of these works.  I strive to make both positive and negative spaces interesting from all vantage points.  The silhouettes of each piece, when back lit, make a remarkable impression.  The details in the patinas and natural stone bases create a beautiful and natural coloration when they are lit from above.  A third view of the work, lit from the front, gives striking shadows that dance against the wall and create an even deeper movement.
