Siri Hollander

Siri Hollander was born in New York but lived most of her childhood in Andalusia, Spain. Influenced by a family of artists, she began sculpting at the age of seventeen. 

 

Seemingly isolated from normalcy, Siri established a connection with the horses and other animals that surrounded her. Later, when apprenticing with several accomplished sculptors both in America and Spain, she developed her own sculptural style based on her unique subjects, horses and figurative forms. 

 

With extroidinary focus and conviction, Siri works indepedently of the trends in art movement. Her art flows naturally from her daily life, without dependence on outside factors. She has become a master of the three-dimensional gestures of horses and more recently has developed her figure sculptures, greatly influenced by the emotional impression in the sculptures of modern masters. 

 

With Hollander's self-taught process she constructs the sculptures with no sketches or maquette. Siri's artistic medium combines steel and cement that creates her trademarked texture which, when cast in bronze or aluminum, bring her sculptures to life. The freestanding horse sculptures range from monumental to smaller pedestal works.
