Jeffrey Rudolph (b. 1956)  Artworks >>

A native of Cody, Wyoming, Jeffrey Rudolph devotes his art to "playing out the dramas of the Old West." He spends many hours carving, an interest that began in his father's carpentry shop. He worked for a bronze foundry and then graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Brigham Young University. He has been sculpting since his graduation from college in 1981. He works in a variety of mediums, including bronze, stone, wood, terracotta and paper. Rudolph's awards include the William E. Weiss Purchase Award, the Spirit of Cody monument commission, as well as two Wyoming State Historical awards in the field of fine arts. The artist completed a heroic seventeen-foot equestrian bronze statue of United States Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell in full Cheyenne dress. The bronze sits upon a large granite pedestal that has two waterfalls flowing below the horse's front legs. Rudolph's tribute to Colorado's Native American Senator will be unveiled in the Denver area, Fall 2003. Jeff Rudolph has always had a love of the third dimension. As a boy he was attracted to the art of the hammer and chisel; this attraction captured his soul. While earning his degree at Brigham Young University, he worked in a bronze foundry. Upon graduation he created a self styled apprenticeship working with other artists. Currently he is working on a series of stone carvings. His work continues to attract awards and honors and can be seen in many collections and museums, with monuments in Wyoming, Colorado, and Ohio. Source askart.com
