About Greg Spitzer

The works of Greg Spitzer resonate with that `something extra` that many other artists strive to achieve. His figurative pieces hold a graceful movement and come alive due to his vigilant attention to detail. Spitzer`s abstract works are intricately constructed with a mysteriously evident purpose that invites endless interpretations. Spitzer`s daring spirit is reflected in his art. His pieces are fresh and provocative, but also have that timeless quality that is usually mastered only after decades in the field. Spitzer began with alabaster and quickly expanded his works to include marble, limestone and calcite. He experiments with abstraction that is grounded in the reality of his vision for figurative work. Spitzer possesses the raw passion of a young sculptor combined with the valuable wisdom and patience of a mature artist. His sculpture is a product of weathering the long storm of a dream and the burning thrill of just beginning to live it.

Artist Statement of Greg Spitzer

“I create my work using some of the most durable of materials - stone and bronze.

I use these enduring materials to create a connection with the viewer by evoking a sense of recognition and permanence. Beauty, classic form, design, as well as a dedication to precision, are essential to achieving this goal.

I control as many factors as possible before I begin sculpting, but as each work progresses, unpredictable elements may appear and are incorporated in context. Often, these elements enhance my work in unexpected ways - the merging of nature with my designs creates my best work.”

Customer comment on 'Rainbow 1 (Curved Arched Modern abstract Carved Wooden statue)' by Liliya Pobornikova
Hi Liliya, Rainbow 1 arrived today. I can`t describe my delight, it is so truly awesome, where did you ever find such a piece of wood, and you are so skilled, creating such a unique piece. I`m not worried about the crack, it`s natural, and part of its beauty. This will be a privilege to own, and will last for so many lifetimes. Kind regards,
Mr A. Chalmers, Suffolk, United Kingdom.
