About Collusion

American sculptor Mike Hansel has collaborated on public installations of outdoor sculptures throughout the United States. His distinctive metalwork is admired for its masterful re-interpretation of natural form using industrial materials.

Collusion is forged from stainless steel. Four curved metal poles create a graceful fluid line and are wrapped in another pole around the middle. The form suggests the structure of a human figure. Hansel’s gestural compositions play with themes like balance, support, instability, and insecurity.

“By connecting elements of the natural world with those of human creation, my sculptures offer a glimpse into a realm where durability meets fluid beauty, and precision converges with organic movement.” Mike Hansel
