Carroll Todd
Living On The Edge
2016 | | constructed bronze | 17.75x21x11 | $15000

It all starts with a simple drawing…then Carroll Todd takes it from 0 to 100 with bronze. Todd’s artwork walks along other spectrums, too, like modern minimalist designs to thematic pieces based on land and marine animals, nature scene, large scale to miniature, literal to figurative– AKA puns and wordplay.

Todd’s sculptures create the impression of ease, flow, and weightlessness which is so far from the truth of the materials with which they are made, and contrast he’s all about. Constructing with bronze requires cutting, folding, rolling, welding, buffing, and a whole lot of elbow grease and the final product is sleek, intriguing, and oh-so-satisfying to gaze upon. Living on the Edge caters that classic blue-green, oxidized copper color frequented throughout Todd’s work. An ocean, river, front lawn– whatever it is shows an expert mind and hand has crafted it. The lonely house is like a slice of a world that could only be dreamt up of Shel Silverstein or, lucky us, Carroll Todd.

Carroll Todd is a native Memphian with a BFA from Memphis College of Art and an MFA Cornell University. Over the course of his 40-year career, he has exhibited in New York, Chicago, California, and Tennessee. Around our neck of the woods, you can see his work is in the collections of Arkansas Arts Center, Little Rock; Autozone Inc, Memphis; Design Network, St Louis; General Electric, Rockefeller Center, New York; Little Rock National Airport, Little Rock; and Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, Memphis.
