A Mark White "Orb" Sculpture... Down Under!

Mark White

It's thrilling for us to get photos and videos from our collectors! Ray, who lives in Melbourne, Australia, sent us these two videos of his Orb 6 moving in gentle winds. He writes, "You can hear bellbirds singing in the background - a constant refrain. You may also (just) be able to see a Koala in the eucalyptus tree above the Orb."

Fun and Fanciful New Sculptures at the Gallery!

Mark White

We are thrilled to have a new sculptor, Pokey Park, join our gallery on Canyon Road. Park was born and raised in Georgia, but has made her home in the American West for years. Of her incredibly detailed, marvelously animated bronze sculpture, Pokey has said "They are whimsical, with an edge."

Above are two sides of Pokey's sculpture Talvez Mañana. We're placing this reflective reptile outside in our front garden. Won't you come by and lounge with us?

A Very Good Year

Mark White

from Blue Winter by Robert Francis:

 Winter uses all the blues there are.
One shade of blue for water, one for ice,
Another blue for shadows over snow.
The clear or cloudy sky uses blue twice - Both different blues. And hills row after row
Are colored blue according to how for...

We are so thankful for all of our wonderful clients and friends! We heartily wish you the very best year yet in 2015.

Arizona's Monument Valley, with its arching rock formations and dramatic, isolate canyons, looks like the surface of another planet. Mark White's recent travels took him to the heart of this desert wonderland, with paintings that reflect the intensity of this alien landscape.

A Studio Visit with Mark

Mark White

November is a bridge month - definitely fall, but also chilly enough to remind one of Winter's extreme temperatures. It's a lovely time for reflection and indoor activities, so what better opportunity than now to visit the studio of Mark White?

George Rickey and Alexander Calder: Wind Art Pioneers

Mark White

Sculptor Mark White has been making kinetic wind art for decades; over time, he's developed a style and creative practice all his own. Nevertheless, no artist works in a vacuum, and Mark is quick to acknowledge his creative influences.

Alexander Calder (1898-1976 with one of his famous mobiles.

Alexander Calder (1898-1976 with one of his famous mobiles.

The mobile sculpture of Alexander Calder is some of modern art's most immediately recognizable: delicate and finely balanced, Calder's quirkily shaped works respond to subtle shifts in wind currents. Mark admires Calder's use of bold shapes, which was a downright radical aspect of Calder's practice when initiated in the middle of the twentieth century.

George Rickey was an important pioneer in the field of kinetic or wind-driven artwork. His sculptures, often monumental in size, make use of geometric, clearly defined shapes, that nevertheless take on an organic, placid elegance as they move in the wind. It's work that is still feels conceptually cutting-edge, while it maintains an organic, peaceful visual effect.
