Well known for her skills in stone, bronze and acrylic, Ailene Fields is both a sculptor and stone carving teacher. With underpinnings in her Lehman College degrees in English and Greek mythology, Fields often draws from mythos and legend for inspiration.
A self-taught potter, Ailene studied the human figure with Bruno Lucchesi in 1980 at the New School for Social Research in New York. She then furthered her skills at New York’s Sculpture Center. Having mastered the figure, Aliene then become proficient at both stone carving and sculpting for bronze casting in order to communicate her artistic vision.
Often mixing stone with bronze, her sculptures highlight the essence of the subjects, most often in an optimistic and insightful manner. Her sculptures often feature animals, mythological figures and architectural elements in works evocative of dreams and magic calling forth the qualities that make us human.
