MOANA  PONDER

MOANA PONDER

MOANA PONDER Description

Moana Ponder expresses her artistic vision in classic fine art bronze with emphasis on the female figure. Raised in a family of artists, she learned the language of visual art from childhood. Her love of dance and the environment have  frequently  influenced  her choice of subject matter. She often personifies elements  of nature such as the  sea and butterflies into graceful  forms that are both elegant  and alive. Other work springs from an inner landscape, one of the mind. Some pieces are introspective while others reach out  to the infinite. Whatever the subject, there is an attention to lyrical line and rhythmic movement that delights the eye.

Born in Hawaii, she was educated at Punahou School and then the University of  California at Berkeley. Specific study was under Edy Burke, Tyler Norman, Fritz White and others as well as study at the Honolulu Academy of Arts. Time spent in Italy and France also greatly influenced her work.

Originally a painter,  she took up sculpture in 1995 and enjoyed a rapid rise to national attention. In just the first few years of work as a sculptor, her work was exhibited at Chamizal National Memorial in El Paso, Texas and the National Sculpture Society Awards Exhibit at Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina and at Park Avenue in New York. Her work has since been exhibited in fine galleries from coast to coast and is collected both nationally and internationally.
