Biography

Paul Rigby was introduced to sculpture by the legendary Frank Gasparro of the Fleisher Art Memorial in 1992.  Since then he has studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the Schuylkill Academy of Fine Arts.  However, he has generally sought individual instruction with numerous  teachers in specific media and technique. For example, Paul worked several seasons in the studios of Gary Sassi of Barre, VT in order to develop his granite carving skills.

Paul’s media preferences are stone, clay and wood. He is a skilled mold maker, casts in a variety of media and does ceramics restoration.  His favorite subjects are animal and human forms, most often worked in stone.

Paul is represented by area galleries in Chestnut Hill and New Hope, PA; Fishers Island, NY,  Stone Harbor, NJ, and Washington, DC.

His work has been featured in major gallery and museum shows in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York.  He has taught sculpture at Camden County College and conducted workshops for art educators and other groups. For more information and to view his work, visit his website: www.rigbysculpture.com

Artist Statement:

Work in stone sculpture is a fine form of meditation.  As such my work has had an inward focus. I attempt to incorporate the styles of past masters as a means to learn both technique and the aesthetics of sculptural art.  From there, the work dictates its own character.  I tend to work from nature finding inspiration in animal and human forms.  The work I do is a continuing apprenticeship to the long tradition of stone sculpture.
