I've been fortunate enough to be asked back to the nascent George Segale Gallery in Lake Mohawk for a month long exhibit. After experimenting with some new techniques and creating some new pieces I'm glad to be able to get feedback from the local art community on this new direction. Onward and upward!
I have been getting some work ready to do an exhibit at Segale Studios in my hometown of Sparta. (www.georgesegale.com/). I have shown work there before and George does a great job of curating work from different mediums and bringing culture to Sparta. I'm excited to be a part of his gallery.
I'll be showing there for the entire month of August, hope to see you there!
This past week I made a trip to visit an esteemed colleague and friend of mine, fellow metal bender Seward Johnson of Grounds for Sculpture fame. (http://www.groundsforsculpture.org)
The scale and complexity of his designs gave me pause, and certainly inspired me to re-examine some techniques in my own work. There is the possibility of me spending some time at his workshop and trading notes with his fantastic staff. Even though our aesthetics differ in realism/abstract, the crafts are both very similar.
It was truly a joy with hopefully more visits to come...
I have been playing with different ways to assemble some of my artifact pieces after a suggestion from a fellow sculptor. He mentioned to me that they could be even more impactful together than as stand alone pieces.
Here is a mosaic I created as a first possible design option... Please let me know what you think in the comments below!
I have been working with a some great new products from www.sculptnouveau.com
It's been so inspiring to be able to take my work to another level with some of their formulations. For any aspiring or current metal artists I highly recommend checking out their site.
This piece is not currently titled. I want the theme to be anonymity and this will be the first of many elements to be featured. It is copper coated steel with a patina coating from Sculpt Nouveau.
