IN THE PRESS
All of this activity has led to some press visibility. Three of Kevin’s sculptures were featured in print and online in an article in the Yuma Sun.
An article about Kevin also appeared in the Sonoran Arts League’s ArtFare newsletter.
In related news, Spark, the short movie filmed at the studio, has been accepted for the Phoenix Film Festival and Phoenix Comicon Film Festival. “”I get a kick out of [my sculpture] Genome Project‘s part in this film,”” says Kevin.
PROJECTS UNDER WAY IN THE STUDIO
The new sculpture in Kevin’s “”Gordian accordion series”” finally has a name: Dorothy’s Nightmare. “”Its tornadic shape led me to the name,”” Kevin explains. The series, which features sculptures made of deconstructed box tubing, started with Sprung. The next sculpture in the series was Square Up. The next two pieces were CounterSprung and CounterSink (above, left).
Dorothy’s Nightmare is a departure from the continuous form of the other sculptures. See Dorothy’s Nightmare on its own page.
Meanwhile, Kevin continues his work on the large truncated octahedron, which has now been named Charged Particle. The main structure, which is 30″” in diameter, is complete and it now has its pedestal. “”I’m focused on finish work right now,”” Kevin says. Next he will decide on a finish. Watch this Charged Particle develop on its own page.
The large sculpture in the spirit of Cosmos is coming together nicely, too. “”I have the ‘cube’ of the sculpture in place,”” Kevin says. Keep an eye on this sculpture’s development on its own Web page.
Also under way is a new ocotillo. “”We just came back from a really successful railroad spike hunting expedition,”” says Kevin. It’s part of getting ready for a big show at the end of the year, the Sonoran Art League’s Hidden in the Hills studio tour.
NanoKnot, Kevin’s smallest version of the trefoil knot at 2-1/2″” square, is coming along. “”This scale demands as much attention as a large piece but in a different way,”” Kevin says.
Keep an eye on what Kevin is working on in the Works in Progress section of the Web site – we update it often.
As the number of subscribers (more than 5,300), views (more than 3.2 million) and videos (more than 240) continues to climb, Kevin is still having fun with the videos he uploads each week. “”The growth is exponential,”” Kevin says. “”Best of all is getting to know many of my viewers.“”
