Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Here I am trying to show several very different shapes arranged so they appear to be working together to solve a problem or build something or be friendly so there is harmony with all. Basically it is trying to show the key to a good life. It is also the key to running a good enterprise.

This is a maquette as well as a desk top sculpture. It is designed to be enlarged by a metal fabricator out of flat sheet metal that is cut into patterns like a taylor does with clothes and then bent in a rolling device to put the curves into the forms. If you look at it you can see it is just several interesting boxes that are welded together. It is a lot easier to ship a small piece and then have it enlarged close to where it will be used. Hopefully in front of some organizations building.

Artist Profile

Born: 1941

Hometown: Burlington, WI

Based in: Burlington, WI

I have an ambitious approach to life ... and to art ... make something happen every day ... but most of all have fun doing it! A sculptor first, and now working in 2D, I do my best to do just that. Presented here are examples of some of my work. •• My sculpture runs the gamut from abstract, to figurative, to architectural. The materials and methods used are diverse ... from figures modeled in clay or wax, then cast in pewter or bronze ... to aluminum maquettes (produced by evaporative pattern casting) which serve as the 3D blueprints for the pieces that are enlarged and fabricated from sheet metal of all kinds.
