Lucile Driskell is a native of New York and a graduate of Finch College, Manhattan, with additional courses at the La Jolla Museum of Art. The artist lived in Italy for seven years working closely with a foundry and a stone sculpture studio in Pietrasanta. She also studied printmaking with Michael Ponce de Leon at the Art Students League in New York, where she is a life member. She is a subject of biographical record in the current editions of Who`s Who of American Women, Who`s Who in America and Who`s Who in the World.
An artist who makes distinctive and original works in a number of mediums, Lucile Driskell has been professionally creating art since 1968, primarily as a sculptor. Driskell has crafted pieces with curves and spirals, anticipating the ways in which day and artificial light will create different shades and tints through as well as around the sculpture. Indeed, Driskell is exceptional in the manner she uses empty space and implied lines more effectively than most artists. Therefore, the art invites the viewer`s gaze into the interior, along the flowing lines and enticing forms. Furthermore, Driskell creates pieces with moveable arms and joints, art that offers different possibilities on how to view them. The geometric and abstract forms expand into essentially different sculptures. There is sculpture that presents a sense of movement in a stationary position, as Driskell`s does, but few sculptors actually achieve a quality of motion. Driskell`s work truly replicates an energy and momentum of dynamic movement.
