“In today’s fast world, life sometimes becomes complicated and stressful. My art is not. It’s elegant, stylish, whimsical, and pure fun.” – Tim Cotterill
Visitors enjoy exploring the spacious walkways of the prestigious Marcus Ashley Gallery in Lake Tahoe. This thoughtfully decorated gallery exhibits the works of upcoming and well-known artists. The gallery’s commendable collection reveals a wide spectrum of movements from contemporary and hyper-realism to abstract and surrealism. Besides its impressive oeuvre of fine art, the gallery is also home to Frogman art, a collection of bronze sculptures by Tim Cotterill.
Pumpkin is a heartwarming depiction of the sculptor’s fascination with frogs as a child. The beady-eyed amphibian sports a high-polished, autumnal patina that displays a lovely glint in the light. Its charcoal-black eyes shine brightly with life and wonder. Frogman gives the frog a bumpy back and stout build that suggests it is well-fed for the day! The amphibian’s webbed feet hold a contrasting patina that perfectly highlights its robust features.
Frogman gives fans and new collectors a complementary addition to include in one’s sculptural collection. The sculptor’s love for these tiny creatures comes through beautifully in his jewel-toned metalworks, which the gallery proudly displays.
