Transitions - Kingsport Public Art Sculpture

“Transitions” by Jim Weitzel

My sculpture is about both addition and subtraction, but always with the theme of surface. The outdoor works have a detailed surface of marks and color. The wood pieces are enhanced with burning while allowing the natural textures to shine through. My sculptures make heavy references to the human form and implied movement. All of my work has an influence of the surrealist art movement. I have a great interest in the sub-conscious and dreams, and much of my current work comes strait from my dreams. I Saw It In a Dream is a good example, as I literally saw this piece in a dream. Inner Horizon is another sculpture that I saw in a dream. The drawing shows what this piece will look like upon completion. The common themes of my work are transition, dreams and spiritually.
