Artist Liam Herbert

 

     Art has been an integral part of Liam Herbert’s life ever since he was a child. His grandfather, Rudolph Tandler, was a commercial artist and an accomplished painter. His mother was a pianist and musician and his father was an actor who became a Production Property Master for more than 110 Broadway Shows.
     Liam was born in Woodstock, New York, at a time when the art community was a flourishing environment of up and coming painters, sculptors, actors and writers...who then went on to become internationally recognized in their fields.
One such artist was Raoul Hague, an abstract expressionist sculptor in wood, who has his works in the Whitney Museum and in the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. He was a personal family friend and mentor. In fact, Liam sculpted his first abstract sculpture at the age of seven in Raoul’s studio in Woodstock.  This began a life-long passion for sculptures as a medium for Herbert’s art.
     To hone his artistic skills, Liam majored in art at SUNNY Rockland Community College, NY and the School of Visual Arts in New York City. At the same time, he was a Production Property Master for Broadway shows, personally staging 50. An experience that further developed his artistic and creative abilities. 
    “Creating meaningful art is my passion. Anything I create comes from the depths of my being. My sculptures cover topics through social satire, human experiences, humor, and my own visualizations. I feel that my hands are led by my heart and soul and I hope this depth of expression reflects in my work,” explains the artist.

     As a visionary artist, Liam creates sculptures that radiate with an energy that reflects back to the viewer in a very personal way. Some of his sculptures have been as tall as 22 feet and as small as one inch.

    “My elongated figures in wood, bronze and silver are influenced and inspired by Modigliani, Brancusi, Giacometti, and Gustove Vigland, a famous Norwegian sculptor. Modigliani and Brancusi have given me an appreciation for the simplicity of forms. Giacometti has inspired me to do tall, slender figures…and Vigland has excited my passion for family subjects,” notes Herbert.

    To explain his creative process, Liam produced and directed a film “Emotionalism Within,” that takes you on a visual journey with poetry and music of how the human form relates to his sculptures.

    “My mission as an artist and my intent, through sculptural forms, is to convey a spirit that embodies the message of peace, love, harmony and whimsy with my creations. Also, because I was a property master on Broadway, I have a passion for assembling sculptures from found objects,” says Liam.

     The various forms of sculpture collections Liam Herbert creates encompass limited edition bronzes, mixed medium, one- of-a- kind sculptures and wall reliefs… as well as thematic jewelry with subjects relating to human emotions and experiences.
