In his work, Glassborow relies heavily on traditional classical precedents and careful anatomical observation. Nevertheless, he manages to temper his respect for figurative precision with a refined elegance and beauty. His is sometimes an Art Deco renaissance. Retaining fluidity in the body while still achieving sharp muscular perfection through clay thrills Glassborow. The skill of merging the two successfully drives him into further exploration of the human form.  Bronze figurative sculpture has a long tradition. For me, the Art Deco period was the foundation for inspiration. Running parallel to that are ideas that spring from photographic imagery, fashion and robotics. Somewhere, ideas develop

Stephen Glassborow was born in Hammersmith, England and studied sculpture at the Brighton College of Art, before becoming a permanent resident of Australia in 1983. He is now one of Australia’s most successful and important artists, where public sculptures can be found in Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne and regional Victoria. Glassborow specialises in bronze and draws inspiration from Greco-Roman ruins, art deco forms as well as contemporary abstracts to present human figures in a unique style. In each sculpture, his intention is to capture the figure in a merging of real and abstract, inspired by a pose, an idea a phrase or a context.

His work sells internationally, in many different countries, and he exhibits regularly in both the United States and the UK as well as all over Australia. Public works by Glassborow can also be found internationally, in cities such as Bangkok, Kuala Lumpar, Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Seoul.
