About the artist

Artist Emil AlzamoraEmil Alzamora was born in Lima, Peru, in 1975 and grew up in Florida and Spain. He attended Florida State, where he graduated with a BFA, and currently lives and works in Beacon, NY. Primarily a figurative sculptor, Alzamora often distorts, encases, or creates an illusion of motion in his forms to tell a story. Alzamora primarily sculpted this series via computer, showcasing his interest in using technology as forward motion.

“The illusion of movement for me is another way of telling the story of our lives moving through space, moving through time, moving through our experiences, and our interactions with the world around us.”  Alzamora
