Bryan Winfred Massey, Sr. is currently a Professor of Art/Sculptor at the University of Central Arkansas, Conway. He is primarily a stone carver working with a variation of stone from alabaster, soapstone, limestone, marble and granite. He also casts in iron, bronze, and aluminum as well as fabrication of steel sculptures. He was selected for the Governor’s Award for the Individual Artist of the Year, 2006.
The Broken Violin is an alabaster and soapstone carving based upon a series of violins that he has worked on for the past 22 years. The combination of the two different stones is a reflection of his on-going 28 year study of the late Japanese-American Sculptor/Designer Isamu Noguchi’s work.
