Matt Donner Artist Statement

I have always been captivated and influenced by the natural world.  The White Rhino, receiving Best in Show, was sculpted from water-based clay, produced in bronze, completed with an applied silver and black contemporary patina.  For research, I visited a local private game reserve, observing and photographing my subject.  I thoughtfully sculpted his powerful anatomy and suggestive movement prior to charging, dynamically gazing, head down, right front leg lifted, turning into the antagonist.  As with all my sculptures, I scrupulously wanted to represent the subject’s anatomy.  Artistically, I worked the clay
