“I am writing this after returning from NYC and visiting galleries.
I find it almost impossible to enjoy one work that I see.. bits and pieces……but some time ago – perhaps 7 years or so…I discovered a wonderful artist by the name of Bernar Venet… and was spiritually moved by the way he used line; creating exciting movement in space.
He did this by his ability to draw with “steel” both on paper and physically. ….So, I purchased a work on paper from the artist Bernar Venet’s that captures the movement and energy of form…..Most sculptors cannot draw – including myself! …but they can see the volume and complexity of the material …I am thrilled with the work…“
About this week’s Guest Blogger:
Stan Smokler is a sculptor, adjunct professor at DCAD and curator. He also teaches an intensive weeklong welding workshop at his studio in the summer that I hear is awesome
(and HOT). I also know that he is a passionate and skilled squash player when he is not welding, teaching, curating or looking at art.
