Another 100 Colorado Creatives: Rian Kerrane

#98: Rian Kerrane

Galway girl Rian Kerrane came to Colorado in 2002 to teach sculpture at the University of Colorado Denver, but her installations in mixed media and cast iron have an international reach, from the galleries of RedLine and Edge to others in her home country of Ireland. Perfectly comfortable in heavy leathers, helmet and a protective mask, Kerrane has also brought the iron-pour experience to the metro area through CU Denver -- the transformative spectacle of fire and molten metal yielding art. And Kerrane's finished work, stark with human symbology, is like a visceral glint made by the magic of metal-casting. Read on for her answers to the 100CC questionnaire.
