In Michael Peralta’s bronze sculptures, the viewer finds a compelling narrative that is derived from Peralta’s memory of the women, men and influential people in his life. Michael Peralta, a native New Mexican whom explored the realm of the figure evoking a classical representational style with contemporary lines and angles. Michael Peralta, young master sculptor, stayed true to his vision.
"Michael was well respected by the Santa Fe and surrounding art communities and will be missed greatly. My goal is to work with Michael's wife, Jessica Peralta, and continue his legacy through his sculptures. We currently have all of the molds that Michael personally approved as well as the finished sculptures which we are holding on to as 'foundry proofs'. When a sculpture is ordered, we will work intimately with the foundry to create a new bronze within the approved edition by Michael until the edition sells out. We are working with the same sculpture producers that Michael worked with during his lifetime. The money from each sale will go to produce a new sculpture in the edition and then to Jessica Peralta and her family. If you would like to contribute in any way beyond purchasing a sculpture (which helps immensely) please let me know directly and I will be sure to help." - Bobby Beals
