Art never expresses anything but itself. -Oscar Wilde
Sculpture is more than painting. It is greater to raise the dead to life than to create phantoms that seem to live. -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Michael Angelo Sculpture 2
Sculpture 3
de Saint Phalle
Three dimensions are real space. That gets rid of the problem of illusionism and of literal space, space in and around marks and colours - which is riddance of one of the most salient and most objectionable relics of European art. The several limits of painting are no longer present. A work can be as powerful as it is thought to be. Actual space is intrinsically more powerful and specific than paint on a flat surface. -Donald Judd, in Arts Yearbook 8 (1965)
Sculpture is an art of hollows and projections. -Auguste Rodin Sculpture 4
Sculpture 5
di Suvero
Do not ever lose sight of that first impression which moved you.
-Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot c.1828
The sensitive observer of sculpture must learn to feel the shape simply as shape, not as description or reminiscence. He must, for example, perceive an egg as a simple solid shape, quite apart from its significance as food, or from the literary idea that it will become a bird. -Henry Moore 1937 Sculpture 6

sculpture 21 Mavis McClure is one of the finest figurative artists to emerge in the last decade. Self taught and just 33, Mavis McClure's larger-than-life bronze and clay figures are dominated by exaggerated hands and feet reminiscent, but not imitative, of both Cycladic sculpture and Picasso's versions thereof. McClure is concerned with what can be communicated through gesture, the tilt of a head or turn of a hand. Combining strength of form and primal beauty, Mavis McClure's evocative sculpture succeed on many levels. Sculpture 8


sculpture 22 Nathan Oliveira is one of the Bay Areaís most gifted and respected artistís. His bronze sculpture are compelling studies in vulnerability and endurance, charged with both energy and restrained pathos. Oliveira's figures speak eloquently of time and decay, destruction and perishability, and of a will to endure and to create that persists in spite of those things. sculpture 23
