Artist in Residence: Delesprie
Delesprie, world-famous sculptor and adjunct professor in the Visual Arts Department, will be featured as an Artist in Residence in the William Rolland Art Center Gallery Mondays and Wednesdays from 3 to 6 p.m. through Dec. 4.
Delesprie’s classical art training has put her in the unique company of past historic Bronze Master Sculptors. She is one of the few living sculptors to have been honored by the “Laguna Pageant of the Masters.” Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley honored her for her contribution to the arts in Los Angeles. She will be sculpting an African model from the Mursi tribe, known to place gourds, flowers and branches throughout their hair and body.
Her figurative bronze sculptures and portraits are painstakingly realistic, magnificently combining strength and beauty with vision or historical accuracy. Her work is timeless and her anatomy of the human form expresses humanity with soulful energy. Delesprie’s classical art is dynamic, emotional, passionate and interactive, evoking a myriad of feelings. The monumental commissions have been incorporated in outdoor areas designed for public functions, political campaigns, assemblies, open-air events, festivals, film and TV, and attract visitors from throughout the United States and the world.
Please come by and watch a true master at work!
