“It is a mistake for a sculptor or a painter to speak or write very often about his job. It releases tension needed for his work.” ― Henry Moore

Fox Galleries presents the eminent bronze sculptor Stephen Glassborow, for the stately exhibition GLASSBOROW; a seductive series of sculptures evidencing a clear love of Art Nouveau and classical sculpture traditions. GLASSBOROW is featuring an array of ideas, materially driven sculptures, solidified by their meticulous anatomical observation, alluring patinated surfaces executed as contemporary realism. A merger that has attracted a strong following, bolstering Glassborow’s enthusiasm into the detailed processes of sculpting, mould-making, casting and polishing that emits a playful joy in the act of making. A superb show of shape, figure and form that celebrates the figure interacting with the modern environment.

“I regard  myself as a contemporary figurative Realist that seeks ways to bring a contemporary vision into my work. Admiring the millennium of the figure used in sculpture, I seek imagery that rebuilds reality from a fresh perspective.”
