Seeking Surfaces

Presented by Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region at Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region

Welcome to the realms of low relief sculpture as an expression of mind, metaphor and meaning. Low relief, one of the great sculptural mediums of the ancient world, generates the appearance of measurable space through the manipulation of implied distance and dimension. Through it, a sculptor is offered a unique method of engaging complex ideas, compositions and narratives. Jeremiah Welsh has lived and pursued the possibilities of low relief sculpture professionally for twenty years. This exhibition explores works that manifest Jeremiah’s love of and dedication to this remarkable medium, in a dynamic collection of both early sculptures and contemporary undertakings. Share in Jeremiah’s visions of self-introspection and the wonderment of nature through one of the oldest forms of creative virtual space. This is the first time that the Cultural Office has exhibited sculpture in low relief.

Jeremiah D. Welsh is an elected member of the National Sculpture Society. He has recently relocated from Tokyo, Japan to Colorado Springs, Colorado. In 2016 he received the Montana Memorial Prize at the 83rd Annual Awards Exhibition for “an outstanding work, either cast or carved.” This year his sculpture “Reaction Time – The Lizard and the Roadrunner,” has been invited to the 84th Annual Awards Exhibition and will be on display at the Brookgreen Gardens, on Pawleys Island, South Carolina (August-Oct, 2017).
