Statement

Biography

Emil Alzamora was born in Lima, Peru 1975, and raised in Boca Grande,
Florida. He later attended Florida State University where he graduated
Magna cum Laude in 1998 earning a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts.
Alzamora started his sculpting career in the Hudson Valley working
with Polich Art Works in the fall of 1998. Since his departure from P.A.W.
in early 2001, he has produced his work full-time and shown regularly through-
out the United States and Europe. He currently lives and works in Beacon, NY.

 

Artist Statement
The human form is a constant within my work. I am interested in exploring
what it means to inhabit one, often exagerating or distorting different
aspects of the form to reveal an emotional or physical situation, or to
tell a story about a predicament or an occurrence. Limitation and potential
are as human as the flesh, yet hardly as tangible. In my works I strive to
make visible this interaction.

 


CV
