Lyle Sopel (1951)

Né le 29 décembre 1951 à Richmond, en Colombie-Britannique, de nationalité est canadienne

Formé au Langara College, Lyle Sopel est un créateur de sculptures en pierres précieuses. Son travail comprend des pièces unique en jade et pierres semi-précieuses, ainsi que des pièces en édition limitée en bronze avec des ornements en pierre.

Réputé pour ses sculptures animalières et abstraites il a consacré plus de trente ans à sculpter la pierre, une discipline qui nécessite une vaste connaissance du dessin, de la peinture et une capacité de visualiser les formes en trois dimensions.

Avec un long parcours en tant que maître de la sculpture en pierre de jade, en 1987, National Geographic Magazine a présenté cet artiste comme étant "parmi les meilleurs des sculpteurs de jade contemporains du monde".

Aujourd'hui, son travail continue de refléter son affinité avec la nature, ainsi que sa passion pour la palette de couleurs et de textures de minéraux et de pierres précieuses rares et exotiques.

En incorporant des pierres précieuses brutes et finies dans ses sculptures, Sopel a l'intention, en tant qu'artiste, d'essayer d'interpréter la magnificence, le mystère et le pouvoir de la nature.

Chaque pièce qu'il crée est une expression de la fascination de cet artiste pour le théâtre de la nature.

Les sculptures de Sopel ont été exposées dans des expositions à travers le Canada et les États-Unis.

CITATION D'ARTISTE: «Je pense que l'homme et l'animal ont le même esprit vivant. J'essaie de capturer ce sentiment chaque fois que je crée une pièce

 

Lyle Sopel (1951)

Master sculptor Lyle Sopel is dedicated to the creation of fine art gemstone sculpture. His work is comprised of one of a kind masterpieces in jade and semi-precious gemstone, as well as limited edition pieces in bronze with stone embellishments.

Renowned for his museum caliber wildlife / abstract sculptures, Sopel has dedicated over thirty years of working and exploring the three dimensional form in stone.

The discipline of sculpting requires a vast knowledge of drawing, painting and the intuitive ability to visualize forms three dimensionally. Add to this the physical and creative challenges of sculpting hard stone and a sculptor could take nearly a lifetime to achieve proficiency in this field. Sopel’s artistic journey has spanned over twenty five years as a master of sculpting in the jade medium. In 1987 National Geographic Magazine acclaimed “Lyle Sopel is among the best of the world’s contemporary jade sculptors”.

Today his work continues to reflect his affinity with nature, as well as his passion for the palette of colours and textures from rare and exotic minerals and gemstones. Incorporating rough and finished gemstones into his sculptures Sopel’s intention as an artist is to try and interpret the magnificence, mystery, and the power of nature. Each piece that he creates is an expression of this artist’s fascination with nature’s theatre and the human like qualities that are subtle yet evident in wildlife creatures. Working in themes that depict essences of drama, whimsy, joy and lightheartedness, his works of art have been critiqued as sculpture that moves, has a spirit and actually seems alive.

Sopel’s sculptures have been exhibited in group and one man shows through out Canada and the United States. His work is housed in the fine art collections of heads of state, art connoisseurs and royalty from around the globe. His passion to create has continued to build a solid cadre of ardent international fine art collectors.

ARTIST QUOTE: “I think of man and animal as having the same living spirit. I try to capture this feeling whenever I create a piece.”

Born on December 29, 1951 in Richmond, BC. Nationality is Canadian
