I'm pleased to announce that two of my sculptural works described below, Ghost Corral and Ciphertext Nine, are now on exhibit at the Amarillo Museum of Art Biennial 600: Architecture through October 01, 2017.
Located in the heart of the Santa Fe Historic District between Canyon Road and the Santa Fe River, Chasm Fine Art reflects my passions, tastes, and adventures as a sculptor and fine art dealer.
Ciphertext Nine is the latest in my on-going series of Ciphertext™ panel installations created from repurposed home renovation waste. Designed to diffuse light and sound in beautiful and surprising ways, the work is based on unique and original construction processes (patents pending), yielding a diverse range of aesthetic possibilities which I continue to explore. Recycled aluminum Ciphertext™ panels are currently under development.
I created Ghost Corral using 324 U.S. Cavalry forged iron corral posts (circa 1850-1880), mounted inverted on nine fabricated steel platforms, which can be reconfigured to interact dynamically with any given space. View Ghost Corral in Trend magazine here.
My studio (by appointment) at 225 Delgado Street in Santa Fe opened in 2013 in conjunction with the Hollander Gallery, which I co-direct with sculptor Siri Hollander (www.sirihollander.com).
We are honored to represent the work of Siri's late father, the iconic American Abstract Expressionist painter Gino Hollander (www.ginohollander.org).
Thank you for your interest in my work and passions.
