Carter Ruthven Jones, Jr.
I have been so in love with the essential structure, the anatomy, the engineering, of people and animals that I have spent the last few decades, drawing and sculpting bone structures of all kinds. For me, the skeletal construction is the architecture of a moving form. To create a living breathing being, I go as deeply as I can into its magnificent evolutionary design to find out what made it a survivor. As a member of the National Sculpture Society, I get to meet other artists who have that similar passion. I was classically trained, learning skills that have not changed in in a couple of thousand years. So my work is figurative in nature.
