ARTS: Skye by Brian Wall

You are currently looking at SKYE, a sculpture by Brian Wall. This massive piece is one-of-a-kind constructed welded steel sculpture. Like Wall’s other work, it combines geometric elements, often created from sliced sections of industrial steel tubes or I-beams. Wall’s work ranges from tabletop scale to monumental outdoor installations.


Throughout his career, Wall's work has been purely abstract, without reference to the outside world, or human figures. He once said: "For me anyway the important breakthrough in contemporary sculpture has been the disappearance of figurative and associative imagery."


In an article “BRIAN WALL: SQUARING THE CIRCLE by George W. Neubert” Neubert writes Brian Wall is an intuitive artist, arriving at “a kind of rightness” through improvisation. “Simplicity” is a word he uses often, and it is a clue to his sculptural objective. His best work has been described as representing an art of balance and tension at rest.
