Focusing on making human-scale, abstract, minimalist, and often kinetic sculptures, D'Arcy Bellamy creates art exclusively from steel pipe. Bellamy’s work is characterized by flowing lines, strong negative space, originality, movement and shadows. The work has a rough, unrefined, spontaneous, and playful nature, often resulting in a smile from the viewer.
This large metal, abstract sculpture is 76 inches tall with a base width of 16 inches and a depth of 16 inches. Bellamy used powder-coated steel as the medium for this artwork. The artist's signature is cut into the sculpture's base. This sculpture can be displayed easily on any flat surface, both indoor and outdoor. If outdoors, artwork may develop a natural patina over time. Free local Los Angeles delivery. Affordable Continental U.S. and International shipping available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.
Bellamy is a self-taught artist. After growing up along the East coast, going to college in the Midwest, and spending 2 years in the Caribbean, Bellamy earned an MBA and has had a successful career in sales and design. Bellamy began to explore art in 2002 at The Creative Arts Center in Dallas where he quickly found his medium of steel pipe as a metal worker. Since then, Bellamy has spent evenings and weekends making sculpture from steel pipe. Over the last 20 years, Bellamy has lived in Colorado, Dallas and Boise, ID.
Bellamy continues to develop his expertise as a sculptor by making new and innovative creations and exhibiting that work. With his unique process of subtractive fabrication, Bellamy has created a large body of original, engaging work that is varied yet consistent, becoming more refined over time. Bellamy says the following about his process:
"Most metal sculptors work in an additive process or one that involves casting. In a process I call subtractive fabrication, I work more like a stone carver, removing material and adding mostly space and line. I enjoy releasing the energy that is stored in each length of pipe."
