Kirk McGuire

I have always been fascinated with nature and the variety of amazing wildlife. It is my inspiration! I’m fascinated in particular by the unusual and unique species. I am also inspired by the beginning of the bronze age of man. I sculpt in a way that shows an emphasis on balance, harmony, movement and rhythm giving my creations a ‘organic’ feeling. Every living thing has beauty and I try to show this. I strive to make all of my bronze sculptures fluid, defy gravity, and bring attention to each amazing species. Making heavy stationary objects appear to be light, move, and be filled with life is a challenge. This is what I do, I love the challenge. I hope through my sculpture to bring an awareness of the land and sea around us and to the animals that live here.
