Julie Speidel: "Perfect Edge"
The work of Seattle sculptor Julie Speidel is heavily influenced by ancient forms and monuments. As a teenager, she lived in the British Isles and was fascinated by the pre-historic ruins she saw in England, Ireland, and Scotland, including the stone monoliths at Newgrange and Stonehenge. Her work in both bronze and stone reflects the primitive nature of these structures and others she found on wide travels throughout Europe and Asia.
Gwynn Murrill has created dynamic sculptures using rare wood, stone and bronze. Her subjects have ranged from lions and tigers to her own dogs but recently she has turned her attention to using clay and capturing the human form during an artist residency at LUX in Encinitas.
