Round framed vacuum tube sculpture with vintage radio era tubes. The tubes I use come from a lot of different sources, flea markets, online, and some are given to me. Most of these come from radios but some may also be from old televisions and amplifiers. Read more…
This size vacuum tube sculpture is the largest I’ve done. This really looks like a cityscape with its hills and valleys of buildings and streets below. The black frame comes out at an angle and really shows more depth than some of the red framed pieces.
This larger piece has a good amount of different vacuum tubes I collected from flea markets. The resin shows up more opaque than in other sculptures. I poured this one is several coats to achieve this effect.
Donec sed odio dui. Nulla vitae elit libero, a pharetra augue. Nullam id dolor id nibh ultricies vehicula ut id elit. Integer posuere erat a ante venenatis dapibus posuere velit aliquet. Duis mollis, est non commodo luctus.
This piece is one of a kind as it doesn’t match the series I have done thus far. Once the collection of tubes was settled, I decided to paint all the tubes and frame red. My wife once said “wouldn’t it be cool if you painted just one tube randomly?”
I thought this was a great idea and I do plan on doing it. But for this piece I thought about going all the way. Why not paint the whole piece? I think the outcome is excellent and it really stands out in an exhibit as one of a kind.
My wife and I both do art. You can see her photography at nanvan.com and she also does paintings. Today we put up our work at Zume’s in Charlestown which will showcase how our styles intermingle and go together. We set up today in record timing although I do feel a little bit weird about exposing some of my favorite pieces for sale.
This exhibit is at:
223 Main Street
Charlestown, MA 02129
I will post an update with the info on when the opening is but the art is there!
