John BonSignore, a New England sculptor, has been exhibited and collected both nationally and internationally. He received a BS in Industrial Design and a MA in Sculpture and Education, from the University of Bridgeport/Shintaro Akatsu School of Design. John also studied Ceramics/Sculpture at Arizona State University. The design of his sculpture begins with a broad concept: a place, person, animal or emotion. After paring away the inconsequential details, what remains is the unique core of his subject. The unprocessed forms of stone and stainless steel are his primary mediums; like the ideas he is interpreting, they are clean and uncomplicated. The process is the same throughout his work; to capture that singular core that makes any place, feeling or living thing, what it is. His sculptures become the physical representations of the essence of his subject.
