Alvis Turner bronze sculpture of a standing nude woman, 20th century. Excellent condition with deep brown patina. Measures 30 inches tall. Alvis Turner was born in upstate New York on Skaneateles Lake. She spent her teen years on the North Shore of Boston at Crane's Beach. She lived on the Potomac River in Washington, D.C., then in Vermont on Lake Bomoseen. She now lives in a small village on the coast of Maine. She received an MFA from the American University in Washington, DC. under Professor Mark Oxman, with a focus on figurative sculpture. In her own words: "My visual artistic lineage derives in ancient Egyptian and the Greek archaic (Nike) sculptures. Later, in spite of studies in Asian, African, and Buddhist/Hindu art, I remained prominently influenced by western artists- sculptors Michelangelo, Rodin, Maillol, Manzu, Marini and Moore....The beings are part animal and part angel. Some dance, and some fly. Yet each one is bound to earth with reluctance. In this created pantheon, I envision Buddhist Bodhisattvas, Greek Nikes, and arc angels- all existing in liminal 'spaces of being'. The sculptures may stand as manifestations of dreams, visual poems, or fleeting realities."
