David



David , for David Smith, the grandfather of welded steel sculpture, not the first but certainly the best in his lifetime.  This homage pays respect to the use of circles as wheels, implying movement but very static. Note the red and that one has a square inside, whereas the other 3 are round inside. The recent painting of the large red circle has made this stronger as a figurative piece.  I had been saving the large section/body for many years, waiting for the opportunity to come by. I love this piece, the tears in the steel, the indentations pushing into the surface like those bumps in a sweater, implying something underneath… the large upper circle and the ripped and bent pipe.
