Ayahuasca Vine Sculpture
Located in Coral Gables, FL
Inspired by a spiritual journey in the Peruvian Amazon, this sculpture depicts the elegant serpentine vines of the ayahuasca plant twisting toward the sky. A Quechua word meaning the "vine of the soul", the ayahuasca plant is a conduit for transcendence into the spirit world, to allow for energy cleansing. This one of a kind sculpture is one of the first pieces by John Brevard and has never been previously released for sale. The Aya Vine sculpture...

Found and Salvaged Industrial Steel Object Sculpture Figure with Face
Located in Chicago, IL
Made from found industrial objects, this face takes on different looks at every angle. A wedge, sprockets, gears are adhered to a found painted steel plate to complete this "Flatlay Face" Jim Rose Flatlay Face No. 05, 2021 found industrial objects 4.50h x 10.75w x 10.75d in 11.43h x 27.30w x 27.30d cm JR0299 Jim Rose b. 1966, d. 2023 Bio Born in Indiana, Jim Rose lived in Europe until he returned to the United States to attend college. After one year at Bard College, Jim transferred to the School of the Art Institute in Chicago (SAIC) where he graduated in 1988 with a BFA. His skillful interpretation of the Shaker design is a result of intense research and field study of Shaker furniture, architecture, culture and history. After over two decades of dedicated work, he has mastered the minimalism of the Shaker technique and created his own unique visual vernacular. The quilts of Gee's Bend have become a monumental influence taking this artist's work to new levels of unique interpretation and artistry. His selection of aged steel results in a patina directly related to that of aged wood while his colored strips beautifully mimic worn cloth. Each piece of furniture is masterfully made and intended for daily use. Jim Rose’s steel furniture is featured every year at SOFA Chicago for the past 25 years.
