M.L. Snowden’s “Angstrom” was created to command attention in every way. Due to its impressive composition, the towering 72” sculpture of substantial bronze appears to float over the base. The figure’s regal pose and classically styling add to the timeless feel of this work, enhanced further by the acid Fournier patina to give the bronze an intentionally aged appearance. As always, M.L Snowden’s meticulous attention to detail gives the sculpture a hyper-realistic, lifelike appearance. M.L. Snowden “Angstrom” Bronze Sculpture is signed and numbered by the artist and comes with a gallery certificate of authenticity.
Mary Louise (M.L.) Snowden is an American figurative sculptor best known for her large scale and installation work. While her process is rooted in the classical methods of Auguste Rodin and the Mercie studios of Paris, she continuously pushes the engineering of her sculptures to test the limits of the medium. Inspired by themes of religion, geology, and globalism, her extremely realistic work also takes on elements of the abstract in its figurative meanings. She primarily sculpts using the lost wax cast bronze technique, which destroys the mold after the form is created.
Inspired by her father, renowned sculptor George H. Snowden, M.L Snowden grew up surrounded by legendary art and artists. In her youth, she spent time alongside Salvador Dali and Paul Manship. In 1990, her father bequeathed her a collection of Auguste Rodin’s sculpting tools, some of which she uses, that have greatly inspired her work.
M.L Snowden’s work is displayed in Buckingham Palace, the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles, and the Ira Kaufman Memorial at the Centinela Hospital Medical Center. She has won several prestigious awards including Japan’s 4th International Rodin Competition, the Alex J. Ettl Grant, and the inaugural Presidential Order of Merit.
