Figurative sculpture series, expressing the grace and strength of the human spirit to persevere through life’s challenges.
Artist Bill Brown was exploring new figurative inspired works when he became more aware of the expanding worldwide refugee crisis. This new body of work quickly began to evolve from those elements. Generally speaking a refugee is a person who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster.
The “Refugee Series” are freestanding metal sculptures, which begin with elegant figurative forms. Each of the figures stands on various elements, maybe a round base representing a circle of ground from a beloved homeland, a rocking boat, a rooftop or other elements.
Brown’s hope is that his work and it narrative will serve to bring awareness to the worldwide refugee crisis and encourage engagement toward solutions. The artist has made a commitment to donate ten percent of each refugee sculpture sale to organizations focused on addressing the refugee crisis.
Bill Brown lives in the mountains of North Carolina, USA. Brown has been a full time artist for over thirty-six years and works predominantly in metal, creating a broad range of sculpture from large-scale work well suited to the outdoors to small scale interior work.
