Original artwork description:

This is a 31 X 33-inch welded wire wall sculpture of a seated nude. It is made of 3 mm thick (#12 gauge) low carbon steel wire that I bend by hand and weld in numerous spots to assure stability, then powder coat gloss black** with an extremely durable, weather resistant material that makes it suitable for outdoor installation and wet locations indoors. The sculpture is easily installed on a wall according to instructions I provide. It is designed to hang approximately 2 inches from the wall surface so that it projects a moving shadow. The piece is signed with a thinner wire.

I make wire wall sculptures for public, commercial, and residential locations. The wire pieces are the final step in a simplification process that starts with a photograph or group of photographs. I make and remake a digital line drawing to emphasize only the essence and feel of the subject, then, like the poet who reviews every word, I re-examine every turn and curve as I bend the wire into a sculpture. The final installation, a solid line in space in front of a moving shadow, has scale enough to suit a large wall without dominating the room. My work has been purchased by collectors from all over the world.
