SCOTTSDALE, AZ – In his show Anima Mundi Arizona rising star Jordan Abernethy will showcase his wildlife bronze sculptures at Scottsdale’s Marshall Gallery of Fine Art, Thursday, April 17 during ArtWalk from 7-9 p.m.
Abernethy’s immense talent, affinity for anatomy and devotion to realism imbue his sculptures with life. Detailed attention to the creatures’ character makes for artistic, realistic portrayal and compelling symbols that resonate with viewers.
“I’d like people to come away with adoration and reverence for the animals,” Abernethy said. “I want folks to experience the majesty of the natural world and their kinship to it. If people can see lasting, iconic images in their minds inspired by my work, I’ve done my job properly.”
Earlier, Abernethy focused on pen and ink and dabbled in sculpture, not gaining the confidence to push himself towards a career in sculpting until an intense workshop impelled him a few years ago. His work now is featured in several prominent Southwestern galleries.
The Marshall Gallery will feature 11 of his bronzes through May 15th, including the African “big five” and a Southwestern wildlife series. “In my different series,” Abernethy says, “I want my viewers to experience unique, powerful pieces that also work well together.”
