BIOGRAPHICAL – For the past twenty-one years Connecticut born artist Jeremiah Welsh has undertaken the full-time pursuit of mastery in & exploration of low relief sculpture. Fifteen of those years were spent as a contractual relief sculptor for Matthews International Bronze, generating plastiline originals for architectural metal-casting applications. This position afforded Jeremiah with the opportunity to engage dynamically diverse subject matter for governmental, non-profit & private clientele across the United States and around the world. While working professionally in bas relief bronze, Jeremiah has also had the pleasure of exhibiting his personal work within the United States and Japan – completing his first solo exhibition in Tokyo in January 2014. He has acted as a sculpture judge for the National Scholastic Art Show in Pennsylvania as well as taught & lectured in educational settings both within the U.S. and abroad. In 2015, Jeremiah returned to the United States permanently after spending three years living in Tokyo, Japan – where he flourished as a privately-funded fine art sculptor. Mr. Welsh was welcomed by the National Sculpture Society as a newly elected member in 2016. Later in the same year, he was awarded the Pietro and Alfrieda Montana Memorial Prize for "an outstanding work, either carved or cast" in the 83rd Annual Awards Exhibition at the Brookgreen Gardens, South Carolina. In 2017, Jeremiah completed his second solo exhibition of 31 low relief sculptures, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Concurrently, his work was also juried into the National Sculpture Society 84th Annual Awards Exhibition - once again appearing at the Brookgreen Gardens. In 2018, Jeremiah gained additional gallery representation and his sculpture was once again selected by jury to be included in the (85th) Annual Awards Exhibition at the Brookgreen Gardens. Jeremiah now resides in Colorado Springs, Colorado where he continues to pursue and explore his personal artistic vision through the ongoing development of his private sculptural collections. “Tending towards the elemental and organic, my work often centers upon confrontation, struggle and passage. Whether this is direct or suggestive, polarized images and ideas provoke and inspire me. In search of such, I find that I am most often drawn to the natural world & more specifically, environments that dynamically manifest the rigors of existence and the passage of time. The beauty and complexity of nature amidst its transitions & the seldom-chanced honor of bearing some witness to them, reminds me to lace up my boots and wander – when I am able, so long as I am able. And so to it, the road ahead awaits …” JDW
