Carter Burden Gallery had the privilege of knowing and exhibiting Thomas McAnulty since 2014. We are deeply saddened by the loss of Tom as a friend and as a gifted artist.
"As a sculptor I have always been compelled by forms and their connection to the psyche. Some, in particular, seem to resonate in the mind with inexplicable power and persistence. In my work I try to select such resonant forms from the world of objects I see on a daily basis. For reasons I don't fully understand, I'm especially drawn to simple and common objects-like a light bulb, a peach, or a bottle. Perhaps through their timelessness and simplicity they attain a rich suggestiveness that more complicated subject matter seems to lack."
