2012 Continuation of 'Primordial Soup' Series: Sculptures & Monotypes 

  View New Primordial Soup Sculptures on Self-Contained Sculpture Page: http://markgibian.com/WallMtPrimordial1.html 

A mixture of medieval and industrial, these twisted and contorted calligraphic intertwining sculptures are designed to float together in space.  They are forged steel 3D drawings forming independent energetic structural organisms in gestural form.  As the abstract knotted structures evolve, the primary elements are gaining mass, the lines taper, and the knotted curvilinear forms can evoke figures.

2008:

Completed Serpentine Structures:
permanent monumental sculpture commission for the Tribeca segment of the Hudson River Park, Manhattan, with the theme of the estuarian environment. The three galvanized steel structures , designed and built by the artist, form an ensemble arranged along the Hudson River esplanade: Twister (15’6” x 27’6” x 18’) and Offshoot ( 12’” x 21’ x 12’ ), soar overhead and have flowering vines which will eventually sheath the skeletal structures. Torque (3’8” x 14’ x 7’ ) is a sculpture which can be used as a bench or loveseat.
