“I combine both the elements of painting and sculpture in my work…by utilizing the various aspects of these two media, distinctions are blurred and new artistic directions are discovered.”--Craig French


Craig French grew up in California, where his artistic talent became apparent early in life. Becoming well-recognized in high school for his unique artistic perspective, Craig chose to study humanitiesat the University of California Irvinebecause he was already showing at the peer-level of the art professors. Taking advantage of the university’s art facilities, Craig continued to perfect his technique and style. He also draws from his mentorship with Alan Ingram who was a student of Henry Moore. Craig has successfully created his contemporary masterpieces for over 25 years.


Craig forces the materials of his art to such extremes that glass, wood and metal lose their inertness taking on the dynamic of motion. Cast resins, acrylics, sheet metals, rare woods and exotic glass are laboriously cut, shaped, lathed and polished into rich and fluid forms; then they are joined and intertwined into arresting color-texture combinations. Craig also likes to deconstruct his work to draw out the supporting elements and make them part of the composition.


Craig believes his art issues from the “beauty and rhythm and the flow of poetry and music.” ‘Flow’ seems indispensable to any discussion of his work. The stationary elements metamorphose into sinuous loops, bends, whorls and swirls.

“The intrinsic beauty of the various materials and the process of constructing a sculpture are just as much the art as the finished work.”
