This piece is inspired by "man" and our interaction with the technology we create. The wheel form represents technology while the figure within the wheel represents human kind. Together they symbolize the product of this relationship. The man is armored in and propelling himself by means of technology, however, how we use or "Wield" this power, is a treacherous balancing act. Together man and technology can be an advantageous relationship in pursuit of our future, yet failure to control our means of growth responsibly can lead to an accident of our own demise.
love this shot for this pice.
Love the muscle detail, what did you use for the cupping and bending? hammer and bag or a pullmax maching?
Thanks! The metal is formed mostly by hammer and anvil, the parts are a little to small for the sand bag, and I actually haven't used a Pullmax, I wonder if it would be handy for me.
Oops. I forgot to include the size, the wheel is five feet in diameter.
This is beautiful art. How large is this piece?
