The Amazing Sculptures of Frank Plant

Frank Plant Sculpture

Hi folks, today I’m just popping in quickly to introduce you to the stunning work of artist Frank Plant. An American sculptor based in Barcelona in Spain, Frank creates some really amazing pieces using welded steel. Frank studied sculpture at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 1993, after finishing his B.A. in fine arts he moved to Amsterdam where he began to develop his drawings in steel. His work at this time constituted simple and direct studies of the forms and compositions of everyday objects and situations. Then in 1999 Plant moved again, this time to Barcelona and he began to diversify the materials he uses in his sculpture. However, welded steel has always been the principal medium for Frank’s work, whether in his two dimensional pieces or his earlier three dimensional kinetic metal sculptures that incorporate found objects. Below you can see some images of Frank’s work along with some comments about his approach. Enjoy!

My work is about physical and social observations. I think of things in terms of compositions whether that be an object, a line of text or a social situation.

It’s important to me that the work be open and accessible. I look equally for harmony and discordance and find them similarly revealing and fascinating.

I’ve been imbued with a sense of social awareness and hence choose to deal with these issues, as I see them, sometimes in my work.

Finding and examining the subtle manners of communication of and between humans for me is all about exposing the balance and symmetry or lack thereof in our everyday existence.
