Alan LeQuire has been making portrait sculpture for over 35 years. These works range from miniature to monumental with commissions from both private and public clients.
As a figurative sculptor, LeQuire relishes the process of portraiture — experimenting with various ways of handling the material, always with the intent to make the material and its treatment as important as the subject matter. LeQuire is motivated by the moment when an inanimate material, like clay, comes alive, and the spirit of the sitter seems to move into the material.
This exhibit explores the many ways of capturing a likeness in sculpture with portraits in terra cotta, bronze, and plaster in varying scale and style. A portrait demonstration, workshop, and/or lecture will coincide with the exhibit upon request. Schedule this exhibit for your space by contacting LeQuire Studio.
