Albert Paley Works Biography

ALBERT PALEY

Albert Paley (born 1944) is an American modernist metal sculptor. Initially starting out as a jeweler, Paley has become one of the most distinguished and influential metalsmiths in the world.[1] Within each of his works, three foundational elements stay true: the natural environment, the built environment, and the human presence.[2] Paley is the first metal sculptor to have received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Institute of Architects.

“My involvement with aesthetics has gone through various phases over the years. In this evolution the constant has always been my focus on personal awareness and perception. My investigation in form development centers on the exploration of material characteristics, related processes and technologies. In creating a work of art, besides my personal experience, my concern is how it emotionally and intellectually engages the viewer. Through the creative process I have developed a personal visual vocabulary fundamentally based in symbolism and metaphor which is implicit in my work.”
