Linear Art

Several years ago, my husband pointed out to me how I love lines. I'd never made the connection even though, as a sculpture major in college, I worked with metal wire for several semesters. But his comment was a revelation and helped me understand why I was so fascinated with using a 2-dimensional medium to make 3-dimensional work.

My focus eventually shifted away from linear work (although it did end up figuring pretty heavily in my senior exhibition) but I never lost the appreciation for a good line. So I enjoyed seeing a couple of Gavin Worth's pieces posted on the interwebs last week. 

Hands Clasped

Mr. Worth's work is interesting because it is 3-dimensional in that it exists in space but still remains on one plane. The position of the viewer determines how the work is received, making it changeable from every standpoint.

I once read that a good kid distraction technique was to carry different gauges of wire around in your purse for your children to play with when confronted with unexpected down time or a long wait. Just looking at these wire sculptures makes me want to take this advice and use it for myself!

Happy Weekend, Friends!
