Joe Sorge
"Late Night Drive, " Abstract Steel Sculpture

2022

About the Item

This large, abstract sculpture by Joe Sorge is made with steel and black dye. Two strips of steel curl upward from a round, circular base, twisting through and around one another. The sculpture casts unique and intricate shadows on its surrounding environment. The white pedestal pictured is not included. Connecticut-based sculptor Joe Sorge studied at the School of Visual Art (SVA) in New York City. While Joe's body of work is most often made with stainless steel which he sometimes dyes to give the forms bold, solid colors, he also experiments with stone carving, genesa crystals, tiger eye alabaster and others. He works with a variety of colors, finishes, and textures, to create the final piece. Joe's sculptures express the fluidity and tension inherent in the material he uses. His work draws on a modernist vocabulary to create abstract, often whimsical objects. The playful shapes each sculpture creates dramatizes the relationship between the horizontal and vertical planes. The resulting positive and negative spaces cast light and shadow on the sculpture's surroundings, allowing the art to interact with and impact the environment in which it is placed.

  • Reawakening the Spirit
    By Sherry Owens
    Located in New Orleans, LA
    Sherry Owens Reawakening the Spirit, 2019 Crepe myrtle, steel, milk paint, dye, oil, wax 108 1/2 x 36 x 31 inches For over 30 years, sculptor Sherry Owens has used the sinewy crepe myrtle tree to tell her story of the Texas landscape, death, renewal, beauty, and of today’s growing environmental concerns. Remnants of personal stories, visions and observations in nature are the driving forces in her work. She believes that what we see and do in our daily lives leaves a mark on our planet. It is the direct impact of human activities on the natural world, which is visualized in her artistic practice. She creates connections with nature using crepe myrtle trees found along the side of the road. Each stick is hand-carved and cut to fit, then laid in place and secured with a small myrtle peg. What takes precedence in the laborious process is the importance of detail and evidence of the artist’s hand and her interaction with the materials. Sherry Owens is a native Texan, currently living and working in Dallas, TX. She received a BFA from Southern Methodist University. Recent Texas solo exhibitions include The Grace Museum; Cris Worley Fine Arts; Martin Museum of Art; Art Museum of Southeast Texas; and a two-person site-specific installation at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum. She was also included in recent exhibitions at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, TX and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, LA. She has exhibited internationally in Austria, Denmark, Germany, Greece, India, Japan, Peru, and Turkey. Her work is currently on view in the Ground Zero 360 Remembrance Exhibition at the Museum of Biblical Art...
