PRESLEY LAFOUNTAIN BIOGRAPHY
  

Presley LaFountainInfluenced by the dichotomy of the traditional life-style and his archaic Indian Boarding School experience of the 60's in North Dakota, Presley now lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with his three children: daughter Aurah and sons, Saige and Samuel. Using rhythm, movement and shadows, Presley's sculpture captures the essence of emotion, luring onlookers through skillful simplicity. As stated by Presley: "The Influence of being part of the modern world and also a Native American Indian has been a source of strength that enables me to keep my own personal integrity in harmony with my art. I carve deliberately without detail…. I want to interpret a whole spectrum of emotions."

In over 20 years of sculpting, Presley has mastered craftsmanship and portrayed extensive emotions, yet continues to refine his personal vision as well as influence many sculptors throughout and beyond Indian Country. Famous for an uninhibited, free-flowing style. Painting women as earthy, nurturing, enigmatic and beautiful in rich, bold, vibrant colors.
