Kinetic Sculpture in 4 Movements: Kahn, Laudenslager, Pillow + Tyler
Sculpturesite Gallery is excited to present new kinetic sculptures by artists: Jeff Kahn, Jeffery Laudenslager, Troy Pillow, and John Tyler on display and online, with an exclusive video release featured in the series: Inside the Sculptor’s Studio. Jeff Kahn explores balance and gravity and the way almost imperceptible air currents interact with his sculpture. Kahn says, “The best part is assembling the finished sculpture and watching how it takes on a life of its own, often moving in ways I hadn’t anticipated.” Jeffery Laudenslager is a master illusionist. He tricks our minds with ever-changing geometries and his kinetic works in titanium and stainless steel are animated, yet contemplative. The geometric shapes often juxtapose and interact in surprising ways, gathering speed then slowing to a hover. Troy Pillow’s kinetic sculpture designs are influenced by his keen observation of nature: the structure of trees, the outer shapes of leaves, birds, fish, and the human form, while incorporating color. John Tyler’s work is influenced by his spectacular, remote setting in the Santa Lucia mountains, where he cuts, welds, grinds, machines and threads all the parts he incorporates into his sculptures using solar power.
