ARTIST STATEMENT

Hallie Maxwell is a sculptor from Ada County, Idaho. Through her art she explores the shared human conditions of love and suffering by creating emotional human forms that are both realistic and abstract. She sculpts the human figure because it is the most universally recognizable and relatable form. In particular, she has a fascination with hands because they allow us to create, feel and communicate. A majority of the figures Hallie creates are from her imagination. She has studied the human form through models intensely at California Lutheran University. Going further than her training, she seeks to create faces and bodies that are entirely unique, just as each individual. Thus, there is a life to her forms that could not be expressed from being modeled after a singular human. She believes that her art is not a copy of nature, but rather the reflection of her inner self, emotions, and the hidden figures within.
