Pam Foley, Silent Grief, edition

Artist Statement of Pam Foley

I have been a free-lance professional sculptor for two decades. I specialize in abstract reinterpretations of the human form, creating pieces that reflect the themes of solitude and fleeting thoughts or emotions.
In my studio I work in clay and plaster to produce original sculptures from which I make moulds and resin casts. Several works are now available in bronze. I treat the casts with innovative and unique finishes.
I also teach life sculpture classes part-time, offer sculpture workshops, and am very active in art communities.

"All my life as an artist I have asked myself: What pushes me continually to make sculpture? I have found the answer. art is an action against death. It is a denial of death. "
Jacques Lipchitz
Customer comment on 'Rainbow 1 (Curved Arched Modern abstract Carved Wooden statue)' by Liliya Pobornikova
Hi Liliya, Rainbow 1 arrived today. I can`t describe my delight, it is so truly awesome, where did you ever find such a piece of wood, and you are so skilled, creating such a unique piece. I`m not worried about the crack, it`s natural, and part of its beauty. This will be a privilege to own, and will last for so many lifetimes. Kind regards,
Mr A. Chalmers, Suffolk, United Kingdom.
