My thoughts regarding metal sculptureOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Steel sculptures take on rich red, brown and yellow tones in the soft morning sun. Dew that collected overnight begins to burn off and vertical trails left behind by drops of water disappear. The heightened contrast that prevails during the mid- day eventually fades away, and the afternoon sunlight pulls long shadows as evening approaches.

In the autumn, earth tones of rusted metal are complemented by the colors of fall. As leaves drop, more sunlight peeks through, and pieces that were masked from view by summer foliage assert themselves. Leaves roll around in the breeze and remind you of metal scraps pared away by the sculptor’s torch.

In winter, pieces are showcased by the bright sunlight and snow that surround them. Each day is different now. The reds, browns, and grays are intensified by the whites. A dusting of snow falls overnight. Clumps of wet snow topping sculptures melt in the afternoon sun, washing and darkening exposed surfaces. Here and there an icicle hangs, and sculptures sink deeper into the snow with each passing winter storm.

Rains take the snow away. The artist, who’s been watching and sketching, now brings his tools back to life.

 

Study of the flat arts, combined with my interest in the third dimension has led me to cutting, welding, grinding, and drilling…the smell, the sound, and the heat. Steel is my material of choice. Art works range from small interior pieces to outdoor installations.

The sculptures seen here are a sample of my work. Contact me with any questions, or to set up an appointment to view the pieces in person.
