Ron Beuzenburg is a figurative sculptor living in New York City. He is committed to sculpting the figure and ubiquitous beauty of nature. Dance is a strong influence on his work, both thematically and by heightening his understanding of anatomy, gesture, and movement. This knowledge infuses his work with a dynamic quality that challenges the inherent static nature of sculpture. Although he works exclusively in terra cotta, his sculptures are ultimately transformed into bronze.
In addition to his series on dance and dancers, he is concurrently working on a series of jesters as metaphors for the human experience.
He is a professional member of the National Sculpture Society, an Exhibiting Artists Member of The National Arts Club, a member of the Allied Artists of America, and of the Audubon Artists. In 1997, he was awarded the Gold Medal of Honor for Sculpture by the Allied Artists of America, Inc. Beuzenburg has also exhibited at The Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio, Brookgreen Gardens, SC, the Erlich Gallery in Marblehead, Mass., and The Washington Ballet.
