Neil Clifford often combines bronze castings with granite or other materials to create natural, archetypal images – appearing both timeless and precious. Clifford was awarded a Canada Council Grant (1990) to study the lively arts in Indonesia, and graduated with honours from the Ontario College of Art’s sculpture program (1994), winning 3 of the College’s highest awards. His work has been collected in Canada, the US, England, and Asia. One of his most famous sculptures is Midnight Descent, featuring a descending owl in flight, surrounded by a bronze moon-shaped crescent. With a unique granite base, polished in one portion, left rough in other areas. This sculpture is limited to an edition of 10, and this is number 8 of 10. (Every stone element is unique.)
