From portrait busts and statuary, to effigies and dummies, people have always made sculptures of people for all kinds of reasons -both artistic and practical. We appreciate the beautiful and the human in these things, whether these qualities were purposefully communicated by an artist, or casually left behind by the maker.
With this outlook, Michael Evert has worked for decades as a professional sculptor, making portrait heads and figures, as well as unsigned work, like models for mass-produced dolls and mannequins. Bird & Tale is offering work on an intimate scale that is meant to be enjoyed at home.
Michael Evert is an artist based in New York.
