Jacob Burmood creates undulating abstract cold cast aluminum sculptures, intuitively redefining aesthetic shapes and visual perceptions. His sculptures draw connections between nature-inspired, organically composed objects, rejecting the rigid structure of geometric abstraction in favor of harmonious compositions that seem to move before the eye.

Burmood's artworks are inspired by modernist and bio-morphic sculpture artists such as Henry Moore and Frank Gehry. Jacob says about his inspirations: “As a child, I spent my free hours walking along a creek that had carved its way through a wooded area. All the forces that determine the path of the stream also govern the rocks, vegetation and creatures that surround it. Though their reactions to these forces differ, they remain related. Becoming part of these interwoven complexities gives me a sense of deep harmony and simplicity, and is the basis of my inspiration. The forms I create are an abstraction of the fluid nature of the universe. The purpose of each work is to find an underlying order that converges elements into a unified whole that moves as one, like a school of fish or flock of birds.”
Jacob Burmood graduated with a BFA in Sculpture in 2006 from Missouri State University. After graduate school, he returned to his hometown of Springfield, Missouri. He later moved to the Kansas City area where he continues to make ceramics and sculptures.
Burmood's works are held in outdoor, public, and private collections across the United States and Internationally.
