Canadian Sculptures' Society

Richard Switzer

Artist Statement
As a student at the Ontario College of Art, I was influenced by Moore, Brancussi, Arp and Archipenko. In the 90's I had been working on monumental size works. My work, whether it be representational, abstract, conceptual or minimal is inspired by all the elements of nature.
