The Idea


I am the Lizard Queen’s assistant and I will tell you how Kerry Cannon turns his ideas into bronze.

Kerry makes narrative sculptures to tell stories in bronze.  His vivid imagination creates stories from anywhere and anytime.  It might be something political or something that he has seen, heard of, read about or something that his dark sense of humor realises is worthy of bronze.

Once the idea has been decided on and research, notes and sketches have been done the sculpting in wax begins in the studio.

His creative Muse must have been watching old Heckle and Jeckle cartoons for the latest bronzes.  His two vaudeville-style crows are both amusing and sinister; laugh at them, but be aware they are survivors and will stab you in the back if it is in their interest.
