Copper Tritscheller

“I don’t have premeditated ideas I want to convey but I do want to spark something akin to primal emotion – a feeling or thought that connects you at that moment with what you are looking at. I take animals which have caused an emotional response in me and try to share that feeling with my work.”
Copper Tritscheller is a bronze sculptor living and working in Connecticut. Drawn to what she considers "misunderstood" animals, much of Tritscheller's work centers around burros and bats. She has been most inspired by the vitality and mystery of the works of Javier Marin, Mario Marini and Leonard Baskin, all of whom are “more about feeling than the physical reality of the subject.”
