George Sherwood

American sculptor George Sherwood explores aesthetic systems of space, time, and the dynamic relationships of objects in motion. The choreography of each piece is governed by a set of basic movements, facilitated by an arrangement of aerodynamic surfaces connected by rotational points. His work is usually made of stainless steel, the reflective qualities of which integrate the sculpture into its environment. For his outdoor works, wind speed and direction, shades of light, time of day, precipitation, and seasonal color transform the qualities of light and movement of the sculpture. Recently, Sherwood has been engaged with installations of wall based works for siting indoors, with elements so finely pitched, they respond to the slightest currents of air. The wall works present a shimmering, subtly shifting surface of reflected light and color, animating its surrounding environment. Memory of Zeno, a piece featured at PULSE New York in May, 2013, is the newest work in the wall based sculptural series.
