I could easily rank him among the top sculptures I have known... His creative ability always amazes me. The arrangement of forms seems to come to him effortlessly. If the aestheticians are correct, his creative talent must come to him from the subconscious in an endless stream... Larry works well in all medium of sculpture... I am positive that he will make an important place for himself in the art world.

Rankin's impulse to express himself through his art yields works as varied as they are emotionally evocative. Visiting his studio is like peeking into secret relationships, foreign lands, and imaginary spaces, and there are surprises around every corner.

"A Giant Talent Among Us"

Thursday, November 29, 2007

If I could, I would surround myself with Larry Rankin's work. His success is not surprising to me in the least, and beyond any doubt he will soon know that this is only the beginning of his recognition.“

My wife and I commissioned Larry to create a life-size cast bronze sculpture of our Great Pyrenees dog Tara and he did an excellent job. He is professional in every respect. We were delighted with the outcome. Also, my company purchased a large carved black walnut sculpture which he designed. It has been displayed for many years in an area outside the CEO's office.

Larry Rankin created an alabaster sculpture for our company that embodies our logo. We are delighted with the result of his efforts on this piece, as well as another piece, made of marble, that he designed and created for us and is on display in our main conference room.
