Sculpturesite Gallery is pleased to announce the new exhibition of sculptures by Emil Alzamora, along with the release of the latest video in the series Inside the Sculptor’s Studio, featuring the artist at work in his studio in Beacon, New York. Alzamora gave Brigitte Micmacker and John Denning, owners of Sculpturesite Gallery, an exclusive look into his intriguing creative process when they recently watched him work and interviewed him in his studio.
Alzamora has been working as a full time sculptor since 2001, exploring the human figure in a variety of novel ways. His focus on the body (thankfully both male and female) is manifold, harnessing a wide range of materials and techniques to deliver unexpected interpretations of the sculpted human figure. He often distorts, elongates, deconstructs or encases his forms to reveal an emotional or physical situation, or to tell a story. Alzamora’s keen interest in the physical properties of his materials, combined with his hands-on approach, allow for the process to reveal and inform at once the aesthetic and the conceptual.
