John Robert Wolfe · Sculptor

Major Field and Scope of Work

Sculpture, Mobiles, Outdoor and Kinetic Sculpture – Metals.

Sculpture is created primarily in painted and natural fabricated metals.  Early work on mobiles quickly expanded into creation of freestanding sculpture, kinetic and static, and wall-mounted sculpture.  The use of color has always been an important element in my work.  Interests in technology and engineering also influence my design.  Sculpture and mobiles are frequently created on a commission basis where a piece is designed for a specific site, public and private.

Artist’s Statement

As an artist, observations of nature and the environment often lead me to create work with a botanical or wildlife theme, often with kinetic elements.  Interpretation of my work is left to the viewer and is intended to provoke a joyful and inspirational response.  My work is displayed in public and private spaces, indoors and in the landscapes.  Negative spaces are transformed

In to positive focal points as the presence of color, shape and form add interest and elegance

to the site.
