Angel Study
Angel Study


By Larry Johnson


Cast Bronze
14” x 27.5”, Value $3,200, Asking $2,400



Larry’s works provide abstract glimpses into evidences of life on many levels including organic lyrical forms symbolic of movement and wing-like, angelic images. He works within a panel format modeling clay and drawing, as if to create a painting in relief. The pieces are later molded and cast into bronze. Not only alluding to figurative elements, his forms reflect insight into elements of life and spiritual vitality. Larry also sculpts portraits and figurative works upon commission or request. Angel Study is on display at Gallery 28 in Geneva.
