Bio:  In over three decades as a sculptor, Gwynn Murrill has created remarkable animal figures that are both timeless and contemporary. Initially working in wood and marble, the artist has since moved on to bronze as her primary medium of choice, but what remains consistent is her talent for portraying the essence of her subject in a form that is simultaneously abstract and figurative.

Drawn to aspects of the natural environment and the complex beauty of wildlife, Gwynn Murrill’s principal subject is the animal form. Murrill has shown her work in galleries and museums throughout the United States and overseas and her sculptures are represented in many public collections, including those of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Norton Simon Museum, Pasadena; and the American Embassy, Singapore. Her awards include a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, a National Endowment or the Arts Individual Artist Grant, and a Prix di Roma Fellowship from the American Academy in Rome. Murrill lives and works in Los Angeles.
