"Technology fused with sculpture in a contemporary reinvention of figurative art."
Internationally renowned for his monumental figurative works in bronze, Jim West brings a bold style and passion to the contemporary art scene with a new series of interactive sculptures incorporating light, kinetics, and sound. His distinct fusion of technology with sculpture is redefining figurative art and multi-media storytelling through intensely visceral, abstract works that ignite uniquely personal, emotional responses. West’s newest figurative works not only showcase his depth and breadth as a fine artist, but also reveal a thought-provoking narrative of the times. Provocative yet poignant, his powerful body of work provides an unparalleled multi-sensory experience for current and future generations. No matter the subject, West’s richly textured sculptures reveal underlying layers of intention that stimulate, resonate, and evoke thoughtful introspection among diverse audiences who often discover that they too have “lived his story.”
Jim West understands and oversees each stage of the process, from initial concept through the installation of the finished works of art. West pays intimate attention to every facet of the sculpting process, drawing together the best possible team. West prepares for each work with extensive engineering and design analysis. He meets with historians and experts, collaborating with curatorial, committees, fabricators and city planners. West presents a series of maquettes of the sculpture before meeting with enlargers and foundries. Teaming with boards and committees, art commissions, and architects, large scale art installations are successfully managed through completion and beyond.
