Christopher Gulick CV/ Statement
 
My primary focus is the visual kinetics of sculpture.
It is my intention to bring to view the” negative space”.
Open air always provides a blank canvas for movement of shape and color. Architectural lines and the motion of nature are primary inspiration for my work. My designs come from three basic mindsets: mechanical, organic, or a combination of the two. The design goal is building the piece to appear kinetic to the eye, even when the work is static
 
Works are suspended, projection relief and free standing.
I work on site-specific commissions as well as my own studio projects.
Large scale works are executed via contract fabricator.
 
Materials range from bronze, brass, aluminum, cold/hot rolled steel or stainless steel rod for the “armatures”. Materials for “ballast” (or positive space) vary from sheet metal to acrylic to found material objects.
