Ailene Fields (born 1948) is an American sculptor and stone carving teacher known for her skills in stone, bronze and acrylic. Her subjects often call upon mythology and fairy tales for inspiration. Overriding infusions of hope and joy inhabit her work.
Fields' sculptures often feature animals, mythological figures and architectural elements. Often mixing stone with bronze, her sculptures highlight the essence of the subjects, most often in an optimistic and insightful manner. Her stone series Sacred Spaces represents places of contemplation and peace, which she feels are mandatory for our times. Themes in her work are evocative of dreams, and magic calling forth the qualities that make us human. Benign and often humorous dragons are also abundant.
While primarily a figurative sculptor, recent works have begun to explore geographic and architectural spaces as well as questions as to the validity of today's 'popular' art
