Sharon Loper
Saturn Blackbird

About

Cast bronze, Edition of 12 Named for the Roman god of agriculture; sixth planet from the sun; second largest planet. Sharon Loper creates transitory sculptures out of bronze, stone, and wood and views her work as landscapes of thought based on organic principles. As a classically educated, third-generation Rodin sculptor, Loper’s work is elongated and expressive. She seeks to sculpt an emotional experience rather than a physical reality. An award-winning sculptor, photographer, and printmaker, Sharon Loper developed her sculptural practice through two decades of study, both at the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles and in private studio practice. At Otis, she worked with and learned from artists such as Charles White, Joseph Mugnaini, and Burne Hogarth, and following her formal education, Loper refined her approach to sculpture and her technique in private studio work with sculptors Bruno Lucchesi, and second-generation Auguste Rodin apprentice, Joseph Martinek. A life-long student, she later returned to her studies with graduate work at UCLA in the graphic design department. Loper's works have been exhibited by numerous institutions such as the Triton Museum Of Art, Santa Clara, CA; Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ; Passage de Retz, Paris; Historiches Museum der Stadt, Vienna; Museum Villa Haiss, Germany; Museum Katten Kabinet, Amsterdam; the Santa Cruz Museum Of Art & History; the Royal Botanical Gardens, Ontario, Canada; the Knoxville Museum of Art; the German American Center, Stuttgart; and the Attleboro Art Museum, Attleboro, MA, among others. She lives and works in Los Angeles and New York.
