“Spirited,” might be the best word to describe the work of the New York based figurative sculptor, Brandon Irish. 

Animated with a riveting sense of life and presence, his sculptures depict the human condition: physical and transcendent, a dichotomy of matter and spirit. Mr. Irish’s ability to communicate emotion, intention, and human vivacity through bronze is of uncommon caliber and subtlety. In the presence of his statues which almost seem to breathe, viewers get the feeling that they have stepped into a kind of outdoor chapel, a sanctuary for thought, meditation, and prayer. Coupled with his monumental vision for public spaces, Brandon Irish creates provocative, refreshing environments which compel introspection and inspire people to live more fully.
