Mara Modlin is a sculptor that grew up in the United States. She received her B.A. from the University of Arkansas in lithography and drawing. She continued her pursuit of art, studying intaglio, ceramics, welding, and sculpture, resulting in a career that has spanned 35 years.
Modlin’s sculptures capture the human condition. The figures inspire the viewer to connect with the space they inhabit and the emotions they express. Her obsession with movement and with the figure in action, led her to explore the raw form, at first with charcoal and clay and then expanding to wire and textiles.
