⛓ “I became interested in wire sculpture as it bridges both linear drawing and sculpture, the two and three dimensions. I create intricately woven wire sculptures using recycled aluminum, recycled copper or steel wire. With only needle-nosed pliers, innovative techniques developed by the artist are applied as the wire is painstakingly hand-manipulated, wrapped and woven to itself. Using negative space, combined with the linear nature of the wire, the finished work is much like a pen and ink drawing in sculptural form.
🎨 Similar to a gesture drawing, yet as a free standing sculpture, the manipulated wire captures the energy and life of the subject, there is movement and mystery. Wire sculpture is a bare and honest medium as nothing is hidden, all is revealed to the beholder.
🎭 My work explores mixed media and wire as a flexible medium capable of expressing the unique space between realism and abstraction; where interpretation and our ability to create meaning is in flux.
👶 I was raised by gypsies. True... in a sense. Born in 1971 I grew up going to art shows along the East Coast with my mother and father who was a traveling artist during the 60's, 70's and 80's, back when art festivals just started to form around the country. I ended up going to the University of Michigan, with delusions of becoming a doctor...it did not take long to come back to my true calling. I find the gypsy life still to be intriguing: I have lived in Vermont, Michigan, Oregon, Washington, Missouri, and now, North Carolina.
😏 Guess I never grew up, art shows are still as mysterious and fulfilling as they ever were. I am a self-taught artist, I spent my childhood drawing and painting, soon sculpture became my obsession.
😎Years later, I'm gratefully still lost in art. With my wife Pam and our cat, Stevens, this is right where I should be. - Josh
