Painted Steel

I like to create motion in space. The CYCLADIC series is an exception.  Really old junk, particularly cast iron, seems very ancient and rigid to me. That suggests the stiff formality of Kouros and cycladic art. I present these found objects usually as formal compositions, without cutting or deforming through blacksmithing. They are what they are. Often I use contemporary industrial scrap for the bases. A spray of high gloss polyurethane encapsulates these objects from an earlier age.
