“When I’m working on a piece, I tend to have a lot of selfreflection. I think about the personalities of the animals and their lives in the wild. Invariably, I begin to see the spirit of those animals applied in my life.”
— Raymond Gibby, owner, Gibby Bronze
Since 2001, Raymond Gibby of Gibby Bronze has been sculpting wildlife bronzes. For him, the success of a piece depends on how well the viewer can emotionally connect with the subject matter. The goal for Gibby is to have the collector first be drawn to his work by using attractive artistic qualities, but then to further be enriched by the deeper messages contained within the spirit of the subject matter.
Moving forward, Gibby will continue to increase Old West and Native American themes in his work. Wildlife and farm life subject matter will always be a major part of Gibby’s portfolio. For future creations he hopes to incorporate multiple sculpting styles within the same piece.
The upcoming year will find Gibby showing his work with each of his six gallery representatives in Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Dallas, Texas; Park City, Utah; Santa Fe, New Mexico; Scottsdale, Arizona; and Sedona, Arizona. In addition he will be showing his work at the 50th annual Montain Oyster Club Contemporary Western Art Show and Sale on Sunday, November 24 in Tucson, Arizona; Nature Works Art Show in March 2020 in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma; The Dallas Safari Club Show in January 2020 in Dallas, Texas; and The Signature Gallery Artists Show during the Santa Fe Indian Market from August 15 to 17, 2020, in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
