The sculpture is inspired by the observations and understandings that everything is subject to stress. This stress may result in the splitting apart of the original form, but often times this reveals a new and more beautiful result.
About James Pedersen & Ryan Pedersen
Sculptors James and Ryan Pedersen are a father/son collaborative team who create welded constructions in relief and free standing form. The combinations of steel, brass, and copper are used in most designs. The earthy colors and textures are achieved through welding, cutting, grinding and heat-treating these materials.
The finished artwork illustrates their combined passion for the outdoor environment as an artistic selection of these elements with a stylized approach that is related to various interpretations of the modern landscape.
