About Ira Reines

Ira Reines was born in New York City on December 3, 1957. Early on, he drew inspiration from old masters such as Michelangelo, Rodin, and Bernini, particularly their allegorical masterpieces about mythology, fantasy, and religion. Reines would later work with the famed Master Erte in 1980, the father of the Art Deco movement. Ira worked closely with Erte, translating two-dimensional designs into 70 bronze sculptures that were sold worldwide. His artistic journey with Erte lasted 11 years, up until Erte’s passing in 1991. This period saw Ira Reines hone and develop his unique personal style in fine art, moving from classical and mythological subjects to more contemporary themes.

As an artist, Ira Reines finds beauty in divinity and vice versa. He fuses this inspiration with his fascination for the physical form to pursue an art form known as “Sculptural Etherealism.” His elaborate bronze sculptures portray intricately designed figures in gracefully balanced forms.

Reines seeks to showcase beauty emerging from chaos. His figurines are often depicted as if frozen in the act of celestial creation, nearly complete, but not quite, and yet, perfect. Marcus Ashley Gallery is proud to represent some of artist Ira Reine’s inspiring works both in-person and online.
