drawing in 3 dimensions
A New Form of Drawing
I have been drawing all my life, spending the first decades of my art career as an illustrator. Creating objects from metal wire came as a natural extension. As I bend and weld wire, I feel as if I am drawing in three dimensions. Metal wire is a simple, malleable medium, which offers endless artistic potential. Intriguing viewers with a false impression of looking at two-dimensional drawings, the structure changes appearance as the observer moves around the structure and challenges the mind as to what it is really viewing.
By building the outlines of shapes, I create a sense of volume where there is emptiness, sculpting in the air as I form the wire.
