Statement

OCEANA RAIN STUART

Figurative Sculptor

 

 

Sculpture. A gesture frozen in time. Subtle. Overt. Becomes a language written by the sculptor, interpreted by the audience in an infinite number of ways. In my work I try to bring to life the emotional vibrance, sweetness, passion, vulnerability and strength of the human form.

Through the mediums of clay, cold cast, plaster and bronze I share what comes from my heart and what I see.

I’ve learned honesty and truth about myself through my art and I’m constantly humbled by the beauty and grace of the human form. I feel the challenge as an artist with each piece that I sculpt and this inspires me to grow and to learn more about what this is all about. I am pretty sure that this will never change because each person is an individual and I sculpt from the live model.

I create my forms to express the particular qualities that provoked my feeling of anticipation during their molding. I search for a deeper reality introducing the mysterious to a world of vulnerability, strength, love and beauty.

The loveliness of the human form fascinates and amazes me. Each face has a lifetime of stories and is a figure which has transcended through thousands of years.

Growing up in Northern California instilled a great love of animals, nature and the ocean within me. I am a daughter of a painter/sculptor mother and jazz musician father and the eldest of 3 sisters. I have been an artist my entire life.
