Premier Ocean Artist
Endangered Species Contemporary Bronzes -  by  Wyland
  Endangered Species Contemporary Bronzes  (2010)
Dimensions (inches): 0 x 0
Medium: Endangered Species
Description: Acclaimed Artist Wyland has completed an iconic new series of bronze sculptures to draw attention to the plight of some of the world's most endangered and threatened species. Created from recycled bronze with hand-applied patinas, each work in this contemporary series is inspired by the minimalist tradition of Native American, Inuit, and African art. The highly anticipated series marks a departure from the artist's predominant ocean-themed art in his effort to promote a greater understanding of the importance of protecting global biodiversity on land and at sea.

'These are my first sculptures featuring animals outside the ocean realm,' Wyland said. 'I wanted to expand my vision for conservation and art by creating a contemporary series of bronze sculptures that capture the spirit of these beautiful animals using simple forms and minimalist sculpting techniques.'

The artist traditionally starts with simple forms, and then adds layers of detail prior to casting. In a marathon series of sculpting sessions, however, Wyland focused on achieving the perfect form first, reducing detail, until each piece embodied the deeper spirit of the animal. 'Art has the ability to move people,' Wyland said. 'And I hope these sculptures will again cause people to think about the animals that are threatened each day by human activity, loss of habitat, pollution and other human threats.'
