These one-of-a-kind abstract patinated
wallpieces can be an elegant room accent or a bold, wall-filling statement. They have real and varied depth, and a beautiful palette of subtle patinas. Their shape frees your wall from the domination of the rectangular frame. Although they appear massive, the wallpieces are actually quite light weight, and can be hung on any sort of wall. Wallpiece parts are folded from brass sheet, brazed together into solid, smoothly finished boxes, patinated with permanent sculptural patinas, and assembled into striking modern designs. The artist does not title his wallpieces, but only numbers them, leaving impressions and interpretations entirely to the beholder.
The patinas are permanent, and can be hung out of doors. Any shiny brass parts or highlights will slowly tarnish over time like a brass doorknob, but the other colors should change little with age. Most of the patinas are achieved by applying chemicals in thin solution while heating the metal with an oxy-acetylene torch to catalyze the reaction between chemical and metal, and bring up the color. Many of the colors and effects come from a layering of different patinas.
Bowman's Wallpiece 05.35
, like most of his wallpieces, can be hung any direction, on any wall, indoors or out. Its green to brown axis of sylvan colors sets off the small accents of relieved bright brass in two places: ground in sweeping lines into the central piece and in relieved highlights on the flowed bronze surface of the small quoin (at lower right in picture).
