I choose Stainless Steel to make metal sculptures because it is a green material that can be transformed into natural subjects of nature by using material, which would have been recycled. Using old world techniques of the Silver Guild, traditional hand forming is applied to achieve exquisite texture and relief shapes that move the alloy. With a painterly style, translucent acrylics are blended in progressive layers to emit luminance of the metal forming techniques.
I worked on another piece for the Homage Show as an entry in the Rivers Edge Gallery in the artful city of Wyandotte MI. The show is going on right now until the end of March 2012. There are approximately 180 new pieces of art made by 40 local artists. If you want to view the show here is the contact info.

Dave is working with the Rivers Edge Gallery with an opening on the 17th of Feb that will run for the next month. This Show is in Homage and respect to Artists in the past. Simple declaration of oblique reference, artistic balance or poetic tones will be in the air.
