Orange Circle Mobile. Kinetic Art Video

It has been a long move from the last studio to this new space. More time has been spent packing, moving and unpacking tools and artwork than actually making things.

I think some downsizing and focus will help.

There are new shops and galleries looking at my work and it seems to make sense that the first images that appear on this site are available for sale.

So there will be a bunch of re-posts of pieces that are still in my possession.
Also, it will be good to spend more time with the WordPress community!

Remember this one?

Bright orange! No black on this one.

There are five or so new circle mobiles from last winter that are being finished and painted now that the weather is better for paint to dry. There is a make-shift spray booth in my studio that is small and not great to use so waiting for good outdoor conditions is better for me.

There will be more effort to include colors this round thanks to input and encouragement from helpful bloggers and followers. Thank you!

Kinetic sculpture is one of my favorite art forms. Not just because the sculptures move and change. It is also because of the balance. Balance to me is art.

Balance is one of those concepts that seems to be expressed in all aspects existence.

Physical balance is how many of us love to play.  Whether it is counterbalancing artwork or shifting one’s weight doing a favorite activity. Without it we are doomed!

Balance rewards us in many ways when we maintain it. Losing our balance also has many, often painful and destructive, ways to remind us of how dependent we are on it.

I’ll leave you with one of my favorite lines, “it’s all about balance”.

  1. It’s good to see you back here, Chris! Please keep your ideas and photos coming. I love your philosophy of art and balance The mobile you showed has much more movement than I expected. I’d love to see more!

    1. Thank you. The move upstate has been harder than expected. The direction now is nothing like the original plan. Returning to New England may be just what the doctor ordered!
