Artwork description:

The sculpture is made out of 9 gauge (about 4 mm diameter) low carbon steel wire that I bend by hand and weld, then powder coat gloss black* with an extremely durable, weather resistant material that makes it suitable for outdoor installation. It is easily installed temporarily on finishing nails or permanently on wall anchors according to instructions I provide. 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.

*Other colors are available for a set-up charge of $100. Email me for details.
