About the Artist


Gar Waterman’s sculpture combines observation of natural phenomena, sensual devotion to the tactile possibilities of material, and a model maker’s tinkering sensibility. Born in Maine, he had a formative year in Tahiti at the age of 9 to 10, where his underwater film maker father documented the experience in an early National Geographic Special. The visuals of the barrier reefs of the South Pacific, with their hydrodynamic fish, sharks, shells, and coral reefs along with the exotic flora of the Polynesian landscape left a powerful and lasting impression. Seven years in the Carrara marble yards fostered a love of working stone, but the artist explores form in nature in a variety of media, including wood, cast glass, bronze, and steel.
