MARY ELLEN FARROW

AVAILABLE ARTWORKS

“I work almost exclusively in stone using broad, rounded, rhythmic lines that conform to the natural character of the stones. My goal is to produce work that is tactile, shows movement and emotion, but demands reaction. The work should speak for itself without explanation or title, but be able to be interpreted by individuals in their own way.
The challenge of working on large public sculpture is most rewarding. I enjoy the mental contest of finding the idea, relating the idea to the history and environment of the site and then bring the idea to fruition. My recent monumental sculptures have had an intricate bronze detail added to them to give them a distinct flavor and contrast beautifully with the smooth lines of the stones.”
