Brutalist Welded Sculpture
My most recent work is yet another installment to my rusty abstract post industrial line of work. This is a piece I have titled “Navigator” . This work is an abstracts of a GPS navigator screen shot. Usually, with this type of sculptural composition, I leave the metal bare to preserve its grit and brutal honesty. This time, I wanted an antiquated look with warmth. I have read about other metal artists and blacksmiths who apply linseed oil or similar to iron work then apply heat. I did this by brushing on Penetrol and then heating the finish. I can report that I am quite pleased with the results. It comes out a warm dark amber and even makes the less rusty parts look more rustic. Check out some of the close ups.
I also added this to my hub I wrote about the metal art I create. Just check it out as I try to update it as frequently as possible.
