ARTIST'S STATEMENT

RICHARD STURGEON

Flowing lines and a sense of motion define form and space in the metal sculpture of Richard Sturgeon, exploring emotional connections, meditations and reflections on our place in the world.  From handheld studies to large-scale installations, abstract, figurative and landscape works in steel and stainless are accented with copper, stone, bronze, and wood.

The essence of my work lies in breaking form into its most basic and necessary lines, revealing the purist of attitudes and emotions of a sculpture. I’m drawn to the methods of sculpting metal, where sometimes harsh industrial processes performed on a cold and rigid medium can yield an air of elegance, softness and beauty.”
