Drawing w/ Steel: My 3D Sketchbook is now online @ Artinjection

 

Steel wire has been my primary drawing medium for nearly three decades. Its mix of resistance and pliability allows me to easily generate the sketches on which I base my larger works. My improvisational technique has become so refined over time, however, that the majority of my new maquettes are fully formed as is. I’ve pared my aesthetic down to its foundation, literally. I intend to begin enlarging some of these lyrical sculptures directly to a monumental scale, eschewing mass for the elemental purity of line.
