Artist Statement of Felix Velez

We are approaching a new age of spiritual art and inlightenment, when our hearts are influenced by what we see and touch. Whether the subject is wild life, figurative or abstract, each piece expresses the essence of the moment, a message to the viewer. A moment in time when the viewer becomes more that an observer; he becomes a participant in the drama unfolding before his eyes.

Sculpting is my way of being creative without limits. I continually look for ways to discover new possibilities to challenge my imagination. Each peice of art, whether figurative or abstract, is an original and innovatively designed. It is delivered with excellence, performance and integrity.

"It is not hard to understand modern art. If it hangs on a wall it's a painting, and if you can walk around it it's a sculpture."
Tom Stoppard
Customer comment on 'Girl with Goose (Child herding Goose sculptures statue)' by Lucy Poett
I must say I am thrilled with my `Goose Girl` by Lucy Poett. It looks charming in my garden and is greatly admired. I will indeed have a look on your web page and see if I can be tempted again ! ! Kind Regards
