Gavin Worth is a young artist born in Zimbabwe who grew up in New Mexico, studied and lived in San Francisco and currently works in Cairo, Egypt. Gavin creates beautiful and engaging wire sculptures which appear as freestanding line drawings. I love the way he explains his work and I simply didn’t have the heart to paraprhrase it, so here goes:

…When the light in the room shifts, so does the mood of the piece. A breeze might softly move an arm. My wire sculptures tell stories of simple human moments: a woman adjusting her hair, a face gazing from behind tightly wrapped arms, a mother gently cradling her baby. The honest, unguarded moments are the ones that I find to be the most beautiful. – GW.

Isn’t that just gorgeous? I find it so fascinating that a piece of bent wire can communicate so much emotion and beauty. If that isn’t a sign of a huge talent than I don’t know what is.

    oh wow! this is perfectly amazing. If i were to keep something modeled after a deceased loved one, this would be the fashion in which i would do it.

    Art is timeless, and so is the spirit and love of those you hold dear.
