Though cast from bands of stainless steel ribbons, these figurative sculptures by Texas-based artist Gil Bruvel seem more fluid than solid, as if the wind could simply blow them apart. The works above are all part of the artist’s Flow series that he says are meant to reveal “an essential underlying fluidity that exists simultaneously within the physical, quantum, and metaphoric realms.” Bruvel was born in Sydney, Australia, in 1959 and he began learning the basics of sculpting at the age of nine before embarking on an artist career that now spans nearly 40 years. If you’re in San Francisco next month you can catch Bruvel’s work at Chloe Gallery starting June 30th, and you can see plenty more right here.
