Inside the Sculptor's Studio: Jeff Metz
New Sculpture Exhibition and Video

INSIDE THE SCULPTOR'S STUDIO: JEFF METZ


Sculpturesite Gallery is pleased to announce the new exhibition of sculptures by Jeff Metz, along with the release of the latest video in the series Inside the Sculptor’s Studio, featuring the artist at work in his New Mexico studio. Metz gave Brigitte Micmacker and John Denning, owners of Sculpturesite Gallery, an exclusive look into his intriguing creative process when they recently watched him work and interviewed him in his studio.

Jeff Metz made his first stone sculpture when he was 15. Although his art program in high school focused on hand-built ceramic sculpture, it was that first experience with the exciting challenge of carving stone that guided him when he later searched for a medium that would satisfy both his needs as a performance athlete and his intellectual interests.

Metz creates abstract sculptures from a single block of limestone, with a mix of pre-meditated and spontaneous actions. He uses pneumatic and hand tools (we see both in the video) to achieve his unique works that ponder the relationships within: between one side and the other, between light and shadow, between geometry and flowing lines, between solid stone and open space, between the viewer and the artist, and between the sculpture and the area it occupies.
