Angela De la Vega
Freedom of spirit is my work's purpose: to uplift and inspire feelings of pure love and joy. My fulfillment as an artist is complete if I feel that my sculpture stirs or awakens personal emotion in the hearts of its viewers.
As I sculpt, I listen to an enduring memory of my own experiences. Each sculpture begins as dramatic light and shadows over form. Unique details then deliver a responding body that listens as a live face does.
Upon signing my works in clay, it is difficult to resist the thrill of creation...I have a strong sense that nothing is finalized; it continues to develop and grow, as do our children. I feel the spirit of life itself is emanating from the sculpture.
Because of the passion that inspires my sculpting, I hope to transmit a complexity of emotions to those who contemplate my work.
