Gib Singleton

Born in Missouri, Gib Singleton's artistic ability was recognized as a student at Southern Illinois University where he learned to work in bronze. From there he was accepted by the Art Institute of Chicago to study on full scholarship. His apparent genius earned him a Fulbright Fellowship to study in Italy at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence. His stellar career path led to a year in the Vatican art studio where one of his many achievements was assisting with the restoration of Michelangelo's Pieta. It was in Italy that his development was profoundly affected by his study of Italian Masters: Michelangelo, Bronzino, Giovanni Bologna, among others. Upon his return to the United States, Singleton assimilated all that he had learned into the creation of his Western imagery. Exploring the culture of the Old West, Singleton expresses the daily life, suggesting action in a new mode of emotive realism. Using Renaissance techniques, Singleton molds his wax to perfect the details of chaps, spurs, guns and saddle, telling the story of cowboy life with all its nuances, rituals and expressive humor.
