Cougar III

Cougar III, 1996

Gwynn Murrill (1942- )


City of Beverly Hills Purchase with the help of Marie D. Shafer

Murrill conveys a sense of gravity to her animal sculptures by reducing their form to basic elements of shape, mass, volume, surface, and color. Murrill, a self-taught sculptor, characterizes her process as "take-away," referring both to the means of making the bronze molds themselves as well as the way she leaves out the details to bring out a mythic quality in her animals.

Fun Fact: Many of the animals Murrill works with are a part of life here in the American West.
