Bounding from Zimbabwe to New Mexico, San Francisco to Egypt, Gavin Worth is a self-taught artist who makes wire sculptures. He creates an astounding amount of depth and this strangely plastic, organic movement with nothing but a thin, black line. Amazing.
By bending black wire into something resembling freestanding line drawings, I create sculptures that engage the viewer by involving them in their subtle changes. When the light in the room shifts, so does the mood of the piece. A breeze might softly move an arm for example. My wire sculptures tell stories of simple human moments: a woman adjusting her hair, a face gazing from behind tightly wrapped arms, a mother gently cradling her baby. The honest, unguarded moments are those which I find to be the most beautiful.
