"Buoy O Buoy" - Creating the sculpture was different from my usual work in only one way - the lobster. Using that reference as a starting point, a stylized lobster claw was sketched onto the wood blank, and from there the process of exposing and creating forms was intuitive, informed only by the sculptural vocabulary I have developed over 45 years of making art. Painting the buoy was much the same process, though my preference for live lobsters (beautiful creatures!) clearly lost out to the red of a cooked one.
Vic Goldsmith was born in 1945 and grew up in Potsdam, New York, the son of a musician/sculptor/art educator/gallery director father. He has been making sculpture since 1969, with time out for a 25 year career in architecture in the NYC region. He has a B. Arch from Cornell University (1969) and a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design (1979). Returning to sculpture in 2003, he and his wife Ellen moved to Cushing in 2006 where he continues his production of sculpture from his studio on Pleasant Point Road.
