Three Caron sculptures now grace Phoenix landmark

Two of Kevin's sound sculptures are now part of the landscape at the Shemer Art Center & Museum Association. "I'm really pleased to have Nucleus, Perchering and Torsional Twist at this important Phoenix art destination," says Kevin.

A beloved Phoenix landmark, Shemeris located at 5500 N. Camelback Road. Built in 1919 as the first house in the Arcadia neighborhood, the property was purchased by Martha Shemer and given to the city for an arts facility. In 1985, it became the Shemer Art Center & Museum Association. For more information about Shemer, visit the Shemer Web site.


The Only Way Out auctioned at Phoenix Art Museum

Kevin's sculpture The Only Way Out was recently auctioned to benefit Contemporary Forum, a special interest group of the Phoenix Art Museum. This year's event, "A Night of Stars," was held Saturday evening, February 19.

"It was a wonderful evening," says Kevin. "The new owner of The Only Way Out is very pleased, and I'm glad that the sculpture is so appreciated."

For more information about Contemporary Forum, its auction and other activities, visit the Contemporary Forum Web site, email Lynn Spencer or call 480-419-2858.


NEW IN FINE ART

Twists and turns

After confirming his direction with a smaller maquette, Kevin has created the sculpture Sprung.

Sprung juxtaposes sharp-angled geometric shapes with flowing, continuous forms, one nested inside the other. "The contrast creates organic movement," says Kevin.

With this sculpture, Kevin continues his exploration of infinite geometric shapes, as he has done previously with After Escher and Mobilus.

"People are reacting enthusiastically to this piece," Kevin notes. "Perhaps it touches them viscerally, as it does me."

Torus revealed

Kevin also addresses the poetry of geometry in another new sculpture, Skeletorus.

"I'm fascinated with shapes like the torus," Kevin says.

Similar to the mobius and the Klein bottle,the torus has three single sides that rotate to create a three-dimensional shape.

Skeletorus reveals the frame of the torus in a flowing form constructed of strong lines.

"I'm still investigating this phenomenon," Kevin says.

He is currently working on another torus that offers a simpler approach to the form's planes.

See additional photos of Skeletorus on its own page.


NEW IN VIDEO

Channel Kevin offers new perspective

Kevin now has 132 videos at YouTube, which hosts Channel Kevin. His videos have been watched nearly 650,000 times.

Since his last newsletter, Kevin has added seven more videos, including five with fellow sculptor and machinist Chuck Girard.
