Dragons Blood Tree

Dragons Blood Tree

Many-layered steel sculpture on two levels of cradled board w/acrylic painted background - 4 ft. x 2 ft. Dramatic red on pure black background. The tree has an unusual combination of ferocity and calm, sometimes seen in Asian art. The tree is more archetypal than realistic and projects the aggressive energy of a healthy totem. At 48” tall by 24” wide, this is clearly a dominant piece, best hung where its dramatic vibe can be appreciated.

Fashionista 2

She wears her piercings and bling with consummate poise. Yet, she appears to have a "swelled head." Is she self-confident or does her self-image require her to maintain a trendy persona? Steel sculpture on cradled board w/acrylic painted background, crystal clear coating - 18" W x 24" H

Lone Tree - Small Planet

Lone Tree - Small Planet

Steel sculpture on cradled board w/acrylic painted background and steel-filing stone - 4 ft. x2 ft. The tree has always been a symbol of life - never more so than when it is the only one for miles. In this case, the very planet the tree occupies is tiny. [You can see this by its deeply curved horizon.] There is other vegetation on the landscape, but not a lot and the tree stands tall and alone above any other life-forms. You have to wonder how it got where it is. Why is this single occupant thri

Fishy Sightseers at a Shipwreck 2

Fishy Sightseers at a Shipwreck 2

Two-level wall sculpture with steel elements on acrylic painted board. The top level is resin encased which enhances the watery feel. 10 x 32 The sunken ship rests on a bit of reef and rock at the ocean’s floor. It is as bare of accoutrements as any stolen and stripped vehicle in a junk yard. No obvious deck hands or passengers are present, but a stream of aquatic visitors swims by. They gawk like any other curious witnesses to a long-ago disaster. The only evidence of their underwater tourism i

Wayfarers Chapel II - Out There

Wayfarers Chapel II - Out There

Second in the series of cosmic Wayfarers Chapels, this structure projects a Neo-gothic vibe in the futuristic spire. Though the artist has used a visual up vs. down orientation in the piece, the chapel floats free of planetary gravitational influences. Other cosmic influences are suggested, even a potential black hole. The structure hangs in space as a beacon of calm and meditative comfort amid the turbulent force ...

Wayfarers Chapel #3 - Venusian Colony

Steel sculpture on cradled board w/acrylic painted background and steel-filings stone - 3' diameter "This large piece is the third of a series of cosmic wayfarers chapels. The premise behind all of them is that when/if humans conquer space travel, the travelers will need places, similar to the wayfarers chapels in the middle ages, non-denominational places where they can meditate, collect themselves, rest from travel and find a therapeutic peace. The first of this series clearly "hangs" in space

Who Wants to Play

Who Wants to Play

A young lion emerging from the shelter of foliage in the Serengeti to look for play dates. The piece is 3 feet wide and is fashioned to take advantage of a new technique I’m using to enhance the beauty of the steel carving. A clear, jewel-like coating of totally inert resin suspends the steel at this moment in its life cycle and protects it from the elements. Carved steel sculptural piece mounted on 36”d cradled board. The background is acrylic paint. The entire piece is encased in resin.

Tenacity

Tenacity

In Private Collection. Steel sculpture on 2-level cradled board with white over black painted background - 3 ft. x 2 ft. This tough little tree is called "Tenacity" because of the obvious obstacles it has had to overcome. You call tell from the raised root tangle and the short [but sturdy] trunk that it has had to be tough in seeking sufficient water. Yet it waves luxuriant branches and flourishes. It is not possible in a two-dimensional photograph such as this to fully appreciate the drama.
