I know it’s saying something…. no idea what, lol.
Is there any beauty to metal?
I don’t know. I only like metal that has been painted (like metal roofs or pole barns or metal buildings) or metal that has been coated, like enameled things or jewelry. What is it about metal that screams “utilitarian”? The gray color? The coldness of the material? The sharp, unyielding angles?
Metal sculpture eludes me. I look at it and I see drab utilitarianism. It has its purpose… but that’s about it. Now, compare metal with wood. I have never met a person who hated wood. There’s something inate about our love of wood. But metal? Hmmm.
What do you think?
