Reynald Cullen

Born: 1927  |  Died: 2009

Reynald Cullen. Sculptor. Mixed media. Carleton, Gaspe, Quebec. Active mid-10th century.

Reynald Cullen created sculptures of people and birds in particular. He used ‘as found’ materials including shells, fish bones, crab shells, wire, cloth and anything suitable that he found on the shore of the Baie-des-Chaleurs in Gaspe. He was particularly attracted to bird sculptures and making them appear to move in flight.  Reynald Cullen’s work is rarely found today; only occasionally seen at auction either privately or on Ebay. An example of one of his Birds (seen on Ebay) is shown here.
