James Bearden "Dwelling" Large Abstract Sculpture

About

This powerful sculpture by Iowa artist James Bearden is from his "Cathedral" series. These works are distinctive for their dense, heavily worked surfaces, repetitive shapes and complex compositions. Totem-esque in arrangement, several dense masses are connected by linear elements and stand on a walnut and steel base. The blackened and patinated steel is accentuated with bronze details. The rich texture of the sculpture is interesting from every angle making it the perfect piece for an open space. Works by James Bearden (b. 1964) are held in many corporate and private collections from New York to California. He has exhibited extensively in the Midwest, and large outdoor public works can be found in Iowa and Minnesota including: the City of Clive, the Lowe Art and Environment Center, the Blank Park Zoo, the Iowa River Landing Sculpture Park and the City of Plymouth, MN. Bearden lives and works in Des Moines, Iowa.
