The recently completed sculpture by James Kane is called “Croaker Couples Kissing”. The title is very descriptive of the twelve “croakers” that make up the bronze sculpture. Kevin Lenkner, Executive Director of the Mimbres Region Arts Council observed, “His works are a great interplay of forms that are at once approachable and contemplative.”
Roberta Waddell, formerly the Curator of Prints at the New York Public Library commented that, “He consistently seems able to instill his work with an aura of a life force and to achieve an organic vitality whether in wood or cast in metal. Even when the forms are geometrically complex, a flow of energy unites and animates each sculpture.
During his career, Kane has also created paintings and vinyl inflatables. Milwaukee Journal Art Critic, James Auer reviewed a show at the Charles Allis Art Museum in Milwaukee and made the following comment: “The byplay between the cast, carved and inflatable objects on the floor and the framed rectangles and shaped canvasses on the wall is lively and stimulating. One’s only hope is that the viewer won’t let too much intellectualizing flatten an otherwise effervescent brew.”
