Brian Booth Craig (b. 1968; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) is a contemporary sculptor who specializes in the bronze medium. Sculpting from life, Booth Craig’s work translates classically derived figures into contemporary icons. His female nudes are imbued with a sense of agency. Mixing 21st century gestures with surprising talismans, his statues are very much of our time, despite the medium’s classical origins. Verist in nature, Booth Craig’s figures capture moments of individual self-assertion. Booth Craig holds a B.A. from Pennsylvania State University (1993) as well as an M.F.A. from the New York Academy of Art (2013) and is an Honorary Member of the International Sculpture Center (2013). He is a former apprentice of the painter and sculptor Audrey Flack.
Released in Fall 2020, Vincent Zambrano’s film Body Languages chronicles the work of Booth Craig; the film can be viewed here.
