“ The quality of our lives is enriched when surrounding ourselves with art that goes beyond aesthetic; art that possesses intelligence in its creation. Art that one can interact with. Art that stimulates the senses when one engages with it.”
"Over the past 35 years, I have traveled to remote places in the world, fascinated by cultures who live in community with nature. I engage with artists whose work is imbued with powerful connections to their ancestors and the land."
"I have learned that art-making acts as a tool for understanding our place in the greater context of our lives, and this principle guides my own artistic pursuits”.
Neil Clifford founded his gallery in 1990 in Toronto, Canada. He is a sculptor, creating one of a kind and limited edition bronze and stone art.
His art reflects his deep appreciation of nature and his desire to engage the viewer with powerful visual and tactile forms. Neil’s understanding and use of natural stones combined with manufactured materials, the intimate relationship between the process of finding forms in nature and creating bronze sculptures for them, and the continuity from the concept stage to the final presentation define his studio and work today.
His work can be found in significant international private and corporate collections and is exhibited at major art and design fairs.
