abstract sculpture James Wilson

When he is not building homes Wilson is working in his studio overlooking the Galisteo Basin

“I have always had a fascination with shapes and shadows and the space
  in between. I really enjoy creating sculptures that have a lot of depth.”

about the artist

I primarily work in metal, sometimes incorporating other materials such as stone and wood. My work begins with a simple sketch of a shape or idea and then I generally draw it out on a larger piece of poster board or cardboard and sometimes create maquettes. I then fabricate the design out of sheet metal. The multi-step process of inflating steel is labor intensive and fascinating. The shapes often drastically change creating abnormal and organic forms.
