Quotes

"La Fond communicates with an intensity of feeling rare in sculpture today. Through careful rendering of body language, La Fond presents an intimate glimpse into the psyche of the subjects. La Fond treats each work with great sensitivity and technical skill. La Fond's work ranges from unique figurative subjects, both animal and human, to the touching sensitivity apparent in "Mother and Child". The maquette for "Holocaust" is one of the most strikingly powerful pieces I have ever seen. La Fond's training in religion and philosophy is apparent in the exhibition."

- Richard Roberts

 

"The other half of Art is the viewer. Art is not complete without the viewer"

-La Fond

 

"God creates, Man reproduces"

-Man Ray
