Gwynn Murrill

2014 Featured Sculptor

Gwynn Murrill's work bridges figurative and abstract sculpture. Her animal figures serve as points of departure for the exploration of form, becoming vessels, which reduced to their most basic lines and shapes, elegantly echo the essence of her subject. Her initial sculptures of the early 1970s, carved from found wood, laminated into large blocks, gave way to stone and marble pieces as Murrill's process evolved through the early 1980s. Murrill is now best known for her timeless animal forms cast in bronze. Murrill's work is held by numerous private collections and can be seen in number of public commissions throughout the U.S. and across the globe. More
