Danusia Wurm

Artist's Statement.

Largely self-taught, I have always been fascinated by form and movement, particularly in animals. Consider the ecstatic abandonment of a running horse or the sleek curve of a bird’s neck.

I work in bronze and ceramic. Through the medium of wax and sensual clay, my work seeks to celebrate movement and fluidity; the “spirit” or “essence” rather than the strictly accurate. 

My influences are largely unconscious, stemming from a lifetime of observation. I hugely admire the ripped raw edges of Elizabeth Frink; the measured smoothness of Barbara Hepworth; the exquisite delicacy of the Far East or pared down simplicity of naive folk art.

I work directly with wax or clay, without drawings or models. I find that the medium shapes my work. It tells me what to do; what to make. All my works are one-off originals. The expressionist "Circus" horse series references one of my earliest memories, that of a rocking horse standing proudly in a basement window of my childhood neighborhood of Shepherd's Bush, London.

 I am a member of the Black Mountain Bronze group.
