Saul Melman

1.–I first met Harry in 1987 when I was an 18 year old sophmore at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York. I was a Studio Art major and Harry was my first sculpture professor. I’ll never forget the first assignment he gave our class. He asked us to, “make the best sculpture in the history of the world”. Harry and the many lessons I learned in his classes greatly influenced me with regards to my lifelong pursuit of making art.

2. — I am a visual artist living in Brooklyn, New York. I primarily make sculpture but I believe that all of life’s activities are forms or opportunities for creative expression. Materials and the individuality of the object are of particular importance to me. Themes that frequently inform my work are ephemerality and vulnerability.
