Raymond Wiger is a sculptor from Taos, New Mexico, and is known around the country and the world for his breathtaking wire-mesh sculptures. Born in Washington, D.C. he studied art at the University of Maryland and the Smithsonian Institution. Ray began sculpting in the medium of wire-mesh in the late 1980's while working as a park ranger for the National Park Service. He relies on anatomical studies for his work and uses no models or photographs.
Over the years, Ray has shown his work in galleries from San Diego to Key West to Amsterdam and has done many private commissions. He has worked on collaborative works with photographer David Morgan and his sculpture has been seen on Good Morning America, the Travel Channel and PBS. Ray is presently collaborating with Atrevete to incorporate dance and sculpture for the stage in an adaptation of the 12th century love story of Abelard and Heloise.
The Plaza Galleries is proud to present the fine art of Raymond Wiger.
