1986 - metal: steel, stainless
Bruce Beasley is one of the foremost sculptors on the West Coast. His interests in natural science and technology inspire him to construct dynamic sculptures which simultaneously expand into and envelop space. He achieves this through the repetitive use of planar crystalline forms acting as building blocks for the complex structures. His conceptions and designs are aided by a sophisticated, three-dimensional computer program that enables him to experiment with variations of an idea before actually building the components. Beasley created numerous stainless steel works like 'Dorion' during the 1980s. Since then he has been making works in bronze based upon simple structures like the cube.
