In preparation for its October unveiling, Kevin's sculpture Wherever You Go, There You Are is slated for installation at Pima Community College East Campus on Friday, September 28.

He has been working on the sculpture for seven months. "I still have some finish work to do and the final patina to apply," says Kevin, "but I'll be ready."

Throughout the process, Kevin has been documenting the creation of this sculpture on video. Watch the series on Kevin's site.

You are also welcome to join Kevin for the official reception of PCCEC's Sculpture-on-Campus show on Wednesday, October 10. For more information, please visit the Events page.


PROJECTS UNDER WAY IN THE STUDIO

While he continues finish work on Wherever You Go, There You Are, Kevin is also working on several other projects, many of which will be seen at the show Metal   Paper   Resin ....

Also under way is Quattro, a sculpture inspired by Sprung. "The name of this piece may change," Kevin says, "based on how the sculpture is developing." It is now upright and largely shaped, although Kevin continues to tweak it and weld it into place. Stay tuned ....

Based on the never-ending form the trefoil knot, the sculpture Knot Me is just back from the sandblaster. The next step is its patina. See it before it was loaded in the trailer.

The still-untitled spike sculpture continues to take shape as Kevin adds spikes and shapes them. See it in its current state on the Web site.
