About the Artist

Jerry Locke

Sculpture

The sculptures that Jerry creates bring the wild outdoors right up close and in your face. Making use of the textures, colors, and contrasts found in natural stone, he successfully creates a wilderness that is soothing…and mysterious at the same time. The work is tranquil yet uncontained. The medium provides a perfect pallet for “working outside the lines”, and environment where he seems to be most comfortable.

Jerry selects each stone for its color, texture and character. The stones are chiseled, shaped, and combined to create landscape that coaxes light from the shadows. The day, the night, darkness and light, can all be found in his work.

As a 1979 graduate of the University of Arizona he obtained a degree in creative writing. He now resides in Tucson where he is surrounded by mountains.
