Artists’s Statement: I am fascinated by the undulations of natural human form, as exemplified by classical Greek sculpture and all that it has inspired.
For me, to be able (and that is the key) to celebrate the majesty of natural beauty by creating art is a thrill like being able to fly.
Artists’s Bio: Sculptor Lynn Forbes began a self-directed course of study in figurative sculpture after a visit to Paris in 2001. The work of the ancient and Renaissance masters continues to inspire a prolific output of work, which includes studies from live models, portrait and other commissioned work, and realistic imagined characters.
The Lynn Forbes Gallery and School of Sculpture in Carlsbad, CA (sculptureschool.net) is the largest studio of its kind, where students can receive personal instructions six days per week.
