BRUCE NAIGLES I SCULPTOR
From a philosophical standpoint, all that we perceive in the
world of form is an outer expression of an inner dynamic.
Though my work is predominantly figurative, I find it to be
the art of giving form to the formless; ideas, emotions, relationships, events. These are by their very nature intangible and essentially abstract, though they continually alter and effect our physical reality. We read them through our intuitive understanding of body language, much as snow blown about on a winter’s day reveals the invisible movement and form of the wind. To ‘clothe’ these subliminal qualities in human figures and bring them forth in a sculpture, whether it be a simple figure inspired by a model’s beauty or an allegory of our human condition, is the basic goal and driving force in my work.
