This sculpture is mostly just a whimsical exploration of stacking cubes. A lot of my work seems to involve juxtaposition of simple elements; trying to eek meaning from basic forms and their interactions. I like the metaphorical relationship to… well, relationships.
Like most of my newest work, this piece was designed using 3d modeling software on the computer, cut from 16 gauge steel with a laser, and assembled with a TiG welder. I’m doing an edition of 10 on this one. The finish is a clear powder coat, which allows the cool heat patterns created by the welder to be seen. I especially like the effect on this piece, as the patterns reinforce and accentuate the cubic forms. Oh, yeah… it’s 50 inches tall.
(Cool heat? What the hell am I talking about?)
