Wire Sculptures by Gavin WorthJuxtapoz // Sunday, 25 Sep 2011
Sometimes the aim should just be a simple complexity. The wire sculputures of San Francisco-based Gavin Worth, whether of a body of a woman or just a simple pair of hands, are elegantly done and appear effortless.
Worth says of this work, "By bending black wire into something of freestanding line drawings, I create sculptures that engage the viewer by involving them in their subtle changes. When the light in the room shifts, so does the mood of the piece. A breeze might softly move an arm. My wire sculptures tell stories of simple human moments: a woman adjusting her hair, a face gazing from behind tightly wrapped arms, a mother gently cradling her baby. The honest, unguarded moments are the ones that I find to be the most beautiful."
