The exhibition Perspectives in Bronze, presents works by two well-established sculptors Greg Bailey & Michael Warrick. These artists will present works that contrast and compliment by exemplifying the multifaceted qualities of bronze by utilizing their own influences. Bailey's bronze work is "based upon an intellectual and emotional response to the predictions of the future regarding the planetary sustainability of human life" where Warrick's bronze work is a direct "exploration of organic form and textural surface with a natural color pallet" derived from found objects.

Greg Bailey

Greg Bailey was born and raised in California and now lives in Connecticut, where he makes his art and teaches as an Assistant Professor of Sculpture at Connecticut College. His natural inclination to make things was brought into an art context during his undergraduate studies at Sonoma State University in California. During the time between undergraduate and graduate school he developed a personal motivation for art production that stretched beyond a school environment. Discovering he had something to offer as an instructor and as an artist, he obtained his MFA at graduate school for sculpture at the Hartford Art School from the University of Hartford in Connecticut. After moving to Connecticut, Bailey continues to make his own art while pursuing professional teaching at Connecticut College. Greg Bailey's artwork is visionary and complex in the layering of imagery and content. Technically skilled in a variety of media and processes, Bailey works in a diverse range of sculptural materials including: bronze, steel, fiberglass, and often creates water, light and motion features in his installations. He works from an intuitive personal vocabulary that pulls from many post-modern and philosophical theories.
