Edward Kemeys’ extensive study of animals in the wild gave him a feeling for their characters. His sculptures convey a wildness and individuality that were lost to animals in captivity. Although the beasts in many of his sculptures appear at rest, we often get the sense that more is happening in the wider environment.
