Carter R. Jones, FNSS. Master Sculptor
I have been so in love with the essential structure, the anatomy, the engineering, of people and animals, that I have spent the last few decades, drawing and sculpting bone structures of all kinds.
For me, the skeletal construction is the architecture of a moving form. To create a living breathing being, I go as deeply as I can into its magnificent evolutionary design to find out what made it a survivor.
As a member of the National Sculpture Society, I get to meet other artists who have that similar passion. I was classically trained, learning skills that have not changed in in a couple of thousand years. So my work is figurative in nature.

Carter R. Jones reaches further back in history. He says, "to create a living, breathing being, I go as deeply as I can into its magnificent evolutionary design to find out what made it a survivor." His marble Rockcroc resembles a prehistoric head unearthed in a scientific expedition. John O'Hern, American Art Collector, August 2016 www.americanartcollector.com
