GLASSBOROW, Stephen

Artist Statement
Bronze figurative sculpture has a long tradition. For me, the Art Deco period was the foundation for
inspiration. Running parallel to that are ideas that spring from photographic imagery, fashion and
robotics. Somewhere, ideas develop and grow, but always around the figure. I have always drawn,
but mainly for the purpose of planning my sculptures. But now, my drawings are developing into a
more expressive form of my creativity.
Background
Born in Hammersmith England, Stephen served his apprenticeship as a Sculpture student at
Newcastle upon Tyne and at Brighton College in the United Kingdom before moving to Australia as a
young professional sculptor in the early 1980s. He has since attracted considerable interest and many
commissions throughout Australia, and in Asia.
In his work, Glassborow relies heavily on traditional classical precedents and careful anatomical
observation. Nevertheless, he manages to temper his respect for figurative precision with a refined
elegance and beauty. His is sometimes an Art Deco renaissance.
Retaining fluidity in the body while still achieving sharp muscular perfection through clay thrills
Glassborow. The skill of merging the two successfully drives him into further exploration of the human
form.
