Monte’s Sculpture Artistic Progression

March 5, 2010

Below are photographs of two sculptures created by Monte at different periods in his life.  The sculpture of the Blue Jay was done much earlier than the pair of Pintail ducks.  The Blue Jay was completed around the early 1980’s.   Most of the Blue Jay is also one piece, while later, Monte started experimenting more and more with molds of parts of his sculptures.  He would then assemble the sculptures and then paint them.

In the Pintail sculpture, Monte crafted the body, wings and other parts in different methods.   He also created the simulated splashes of water.

Again, the contrast of the two pieces not only illustrates a growth in Monte’s talent, but also a change in his ability to create pieces of higher quality with improved forms of artistic media.
