Artist Statement on the work
This series is an augmentation of a very successful past series of mine entitled
‘proper perspectives’. This series looks to examine, contemplate and search for truth in the world in the images we see and words we speak and hear. The bronze pieces resemble large stone elements that have been cut, smoothed and polished on its exterior and showing the raw stone within its core.
About Gerard Basil Stripling
Gerard Basil Stripling is a sculptor and fabricator that specializes in making dreams come into reality with a focus on contrasting textures and high-flying ideas. Starting his creative life as a costume designer for the music industry, Basil traveled the world, collecting experiences that would eventually seep into the dreamscapes he would begin creating in bronze, stone, and wood. He has become a master at casting and carving in a continued effort to master the images in the head.
A resident of Laguna Beach, Basil splits his time between the studio and supporting a number of community projects. He has received several awards for his work and has been commissioned for a number of public works in the Southern California area as well as private projects. American Style Magazine listed Basil as one of the artists to watch in 2008. They were not wrong.
