July 2005: Clark Tuthill Sculpture

Clark Tuthill will be showing fabricated metal sculptures.  His constructions are created from steel; some new, some forged, some found objects and all welded into abstracted shapes.  The surface is a play of dark and light, with contrast between brushed steel and shiny newly exposed metal.  When asked what he liked about working with steel, Tuthill replied "I like the heaviness of the material and the method of working with steel.  It's an additive process, as opposed to stone carving which is a subtractive process.  I like the effect of building up and working out the shapes as I go along.  Tuthill will have a variety of sizes, the most being 18" to 24"tall, though one of his sculptures is a long column entitledCurve reaching nine feet.
