Sculptor, Jeffrey Burnham Rudolph (b. 1956), was one of this year’s artists in residence in the Whitney Western Art Museum at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming.
In this interview, Rudolph discusses his journey as an artist, his work, and provides commentary on the process of turning a clay sculpture into a finished artwork in stone and bronze.
Jeff Rudolph was born in Cody, WY and received his BA from Brigham Young University. He strives to produce sculpture that evokes an emotion, a spirit, or a feeling that others can relate to, the glory of the soaring eagle to the tenderness of the timid cottontail to the tragedy and nobility of mankind.
