The Thinker

“The Thinker” by Eduardo Gomez, Cast Bronze, 12″ x 8.5″ x 9″

 

I was born in Bogota, Colombia in 1951 and moved to the USA as a young man. I graduated with a BA, in Economics, and obtained a Master’s degree in Social Work. Later in life, I went back to the University and completed my art major in sculpture and was admitted to the graduate school.  I have also studied independently under various nationally recognized sculptors.

The artist at work

Artist Eduardo Gomez working on “Soul Dance”.

 

I have exhibited in various Museums and international juried art shows. I am currently a sculpture instructor at the Lighthouse Art Center in Tequesta, Florida. My sculpture studio is in Jensen Beach, Florida. I am particularly proud of the commissioned memorial work I have done here and abroad.

 

El Viejo

What are your goals?

I am obsessed with the raw beauty of the human form. Whenever possible I use live models because I need a human connection with my subjects. Our individual bodies carry the imprints of our lives and our souls. For me form is a vehicle for expressing individual character rather than idealized perfection.

 

Danseu Royal

What are you working on now?

My work always starts in clay because it allows me to quickly develop an idea into a visual concept. I then may finish the work in clay or evolve to casting the work in bronze or other media. This may take months or even years. I work on many projects at once because they are at different stages of development.

 

Flamenco Dancer

I like making portraits, full figure sculptures and reliefs. I don’t follow any particular formula and I don’t sculpt for a particular audience. I do try to be honest and express my true feelings. I leave the psychoanalysis to the psychiatrists. I accept private and public commissions, small to monumental.

 

Faith

What inspires you?

The human body in all its aspects and conditions is my main source of inspiration. In it I see the incredible beauty and perfection of creation as well as the raw reflection of our human condition.

 

Frankly Frank

“Frankly Frank” by Eduardo Gomez, Cast Bronze, 7.5″ x 5.25″ x 5.5″

 

Individual uniqueness inspires me. Life affects all humans in a singular way. Our bodies are a journal of our life and an X-Ray of our soul. I find a raw beauty in this uniqueness and my work attempts to chronicle my own personal perception of this uniqueness. The result can be beautiful but can also be intense and even disturbing.

 

Seal Team Buddies

Human relationships inspire me. For this reason I like making sculptures with multiple figures.

 

Uno ... Dos

“Uno…Dos” by Eduardo Gomez, Clay for Bronze, 17″ x 14.25″ x .5″

 

Physical movement inspires me. Its grace and its plasticity; its mysterious perfection; even what it may say about our brokenness. That is why I like sculpting dancers and other athletes.
