LaMure Jr., Dave

Dave LaMure Jr.
Born in 1963 in Schurz, Nevada; lives in Kimberly, Idaho

DAVE LAMURE, JR. has had a studio in Idaho for thirty-two years. His uncle inspired him with a bag of clay at the age of twelve. Later LaMure took a clay workshop at the Roswell Museum in New Mexico that stirred a lifetime passion for art.

Balancing art forms has taken LaMure a lifetime, from his monumental public bronze sculptures to his oil canvases. He absorbed inspiration from being a wilderness river guide and an outdoorsman. LaMure explores his art narratives in the natural rhythms of life, death, and belonging. His life-size bronze of red-tailed hawks is the most photographed public work in the sculpture park at Fountain Hills, Arizona. Dave uses his bronze vessels as a foundation much like a canvas for a painting, using detailed bas-relief depicting iconic wildlife.
