"My intention is to create sculpture with the intensity of the best modern and carved sculpture of the past. This is important because modeling and carving no longer seem capable of sustaining a high level of intensity, whereas the expressive possibilities of geometry are only just beginning to be explored." Clement Meadmore
Meadmore is represented in collections at major museums worldwide including the The National Gallery of Victoria, Australia, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Portland Art Museum, The Butler Institute of American Art including public collections in the United States and Japan. Large scale sculptures have been installed on college campuses throughout the country including Princeton University, Columbia University and the University of Michigan. One person exhibitions have been held at the Contemporary Sculpture Center, Tokyo; Amarillo Art Center, Texas; Grand Rapids Art Museum, Michigan; Albuquerque Museum, New Mexico; Jacksonville Art Museum, Florida; and Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio.
Clement Meadmore was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1929 and lived and worked most of his life in New York City where he died in 2005.
In his spare time, he liked to play drums and host jam sessions.
