Gwynn Murrill conveys a sense of gravity to her animal sculptures by reducing their form to basic elements of shape, mass, volume, surface, and color. Murrill, a self-taught sculptor, characterizes her process as "take-away," referring both to the means of making the bronze molds themselves as well as the way she leaves out the details of specificity to bring out a mythic quality in her animals.
