Larry R. Rankin


Santa Barbara News Press
March 24, 1984

...The Santa Barbara Arts Council show at Studio 10, 912 Santa Barbara St., offers the first chance to view the works of sculptor Larry Rankin in any kind of depth. Rankin does both figurative and non-figurative work, with examples here both in black walnut and alabaster. He has a good sense of form and materials. I enjoyed "Numbers," Man Woman and Child, "Back to Back," "Train" He deserves great local recognition....

"Rankin's impulse to express himself through his art yields works as varied as they are emotionally evocative. Visiting his studio is like peeking into secret relationships, foreign lands, and imaginary spaces, and there are surprises around every corner." -Heather Jeno
