FIREBALL GALLERY 3 AT THE MURPHY

TONY DOW

Dow creates abstract bronze sculptures. Tony describes his work saying “The figures are abstract and not meant to represent reality but rather the truth of the interactions as I see and feel them”. I find the wood in the hills of Topanga Canyon and each piece evolves from my subconscious. I produce limited editions of nine bronzes using the lost wax process from molds of the original burl sculpture.” One of his bronze pieces was on display in the backyard garden of Barbara Billingsley, who played his mother on Leave It to Beaver. He was chosen as one of three sculptors to show at the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts exhibition, in the Carrousel du Louvre, in Paris, France, in December 2008.
