About The Artist
Born in 1992 in Nebraska, Krystal Gorman is an up and coming sculptor in the Tri-state area. Gorman studied under numerous painters in her youth and taught for three years before receiving her BFA in Sculpture at The University of the Arts. While at this institution, she dabbled with wood and metal working, jewelry, molding and casting, as well as painting and illustration. But she discovered her true passion was figurative sculpture.
In her earlier years as an illustrator, she painted a 5×7 foot mural for a rental company in Eastern Pennsylvania and in 2013 Gorman volunteered for the 70×7 The Meal act XXXIV in Philadelphia Pa. Gorman has been in numerous informal exhibitions, most of them private shows that included the students in her graduating class. In late spring of 2015 Krystal participated in the 5 into 1 exhibition at Moore College of Art. Krystal Gorman worked with Philadelphia sculptor Thomas Miles as his studio assistant in 2016. Currently, Gorman is experimenting with new materials and concepts that involve the relationship between Spirit and Body. Her most recent large work was on display for a month at the corner Pine Street and Broad Street in Philadelphia as part of the HHPAI (Hamilton Hall Public Arts Initiative)
Krystal Gorman works mostly with the figure, whether it is human or animal, the structure of the body has always fascinated her. While using figure modeling as a basis for her sculptures, Gorman incorporates themes of Nature, Nurturing and Decay with her use of unconventional materials and concepts.
