Art and the Animal: Hands-on Artist Talk with Mick Doellinger
Best known for his animal sculptures, artist and sculptor Mick Doellinger will share his inspiration and creative process during an artist’s talk at the Briscoe. Doellinger is bringing a few sculptures for everyone to explore. Guests can also enjoy his work, “Annoyed”, currently on display in the Briscoe’s New Works gallery.
One of the artists featured in the Briscoe’s annual Night of Artists exhibition and sale, Mick Doellinger strives to capture “the essence” of an animal, and hopes viewers will connect with his sculptures in some way: “For me, it’s less about creating a perfect replica of the animal, and more about sculpting a narrative or moment in time.”
Doellinger has spent his entire life working with and around animals. He believes his time in the field studying the subjects and the environments they occupy is critical to his creative process. This lifelong accumulation of hands-on knowledge has given him unique insights into the anatomy, movements, and behavior of the animals.
