A fine sculptor for 30 years, American artist Rob Lorenson creates dynamic abstract pieces that are visually captivating. This large elegant outdoor sculpture is forged from stainless steel and features three curved columns of varying lengths that appear to support a circle of steel, cut in half and angled. Coated in a brilliant shiny red, Lorenson’s work demands attention. One of a series.
“Working with metal has been for me an odyssey in expression of form, space and place making. Fine metal craft excites me in any form but is elevated within the medium of sculpture.” Rob Lorenson
Born in Iowa in 1969, Lorenson had an early interest in art and sculpture and attended The University of Northern Iowa on an arts scholarship.
