About the Artist
Albert Paley is an American modernist metal sculptor. Initially starting out as a jeweler, Paley has become one of the most distinguished and influential metal smiths in the world. Within each of his works, three foundational elements stay true: the natural environment, the built environment, and the human presence.
In creating a work of art, besides my personal experience, my concern is how it emotionally and intellectually engages the viewer. Through the creative process I have developed a personal visual vocabulary fundamentally based in symbolism and metaphor which is implicit in my work.”Albert Paley, Philadelphia, PA
