Fred Briscoe

When creating his contemporary stone sculptures, Fred enters into a dialogue with the stone with no preconceived direction; his only goal is to speak this language through this rock. This method is most akin to “play-free-spirited exploring” form, wherever it leads - like a child digging tunnels or building castles in the sand.


To Fred, the beauty of classical elements  become significant components of this language – line, curve, edge, proportion, negative space, texture. How they develop into a new unique combination becomes, as he says, “my fun, my job, and my joy – and on a good day, that joy is shared."
