Oct. 16, 2011 - PRLog -- The Wire Sculpture of Donald Kolberg will be on display at the Hollingsworth Gallery in Palm Coast, Florida until the middle of November. He continues to expand on his concept of Life Forms in figurative as well as abstract concepts. In this show, Donald has abandoned traditional sculptural techniques of creating volume  for what he has termed, “MANIPULATIVE SCULPTURE”.  These pieces come alive as the interplay of cast shadows on the walls of the gallery mesh with the surface of these unique sculptures. Additional works can be seen at http//:www.donaldkolberg.com

I look for an ease and harmony in my Wire Mesh Sculpture, what Matisse called "arabesque". The surface of each piece is disconnected from any underlying structure so that a style of sculpting is created which manipulates the medium.  By rejecting the volume and mass of traditional sculpture, my art creates a kinetic rhythm which allows me to explore the basic form of our perception of real time.  This makes the sculptures appear to be alive and frozen at the same time. Even the most perceptually static of the pieces explores the problems of form and movement. The character of the steel mesh diffuses the importance of mass so that I can emphasize the inner muscular tension, sometimes through a distortion of the figure itself.
I usually work from a model, form by hand, bend and manipulate the steel screen in relation to the tension created by the pose. The intricacies of the push and pull of the surface of the form caused by the body’s muscles is what I'm after. And the resulting relationship to light and shadow that becomes integrated with the final piece.
