Maureen Quin born and raised in Alexandria a town in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Maureen is an artist who expresses a unique sensitivity in form as well as energy for life through her sculptures. Her work is characterized by its dynamic quality and communicates successfully with its surrounding space.
Each sculpture is an exciting journey, starting with a vague concept, sketching it to achieve a visual form, building the armature, fleshing it out and having it cast in bronze.
In this process of creating Maureen uses her talents, experience, and intuition to guide her until she is satisfied within herself that the sculptural form she is created, moves in space and is in harmony with her vision.
In many studies Maureen endeavour to capture the rapport between humans and the animal kingdom by combining the two to create sculptures that are uniquely her own abstract expressive approach. Creating and searching for the ultimate realization of her vision is the fulfilment of her life.
‘Sculpture is my passion. It is an extension of myself, reflecting my thoughts, my loves, hates joys and fears. Whether I am involved in representational wildlife studies, realistic figure studies or abstractions, I put my heart and soul into it.’
