Darren Wise

What inspires your art practice?
I was always a little artistic. An Artist friend asked if I could help him with learning about Stainless Steel as this is my trade. After spending some time with him I had some ideas of my own. I thought I would see what I could make and I haven’t looked back.

What materials do you work in?
I work in Stainless Steel with rock and timber.

Briefly describe your artwork for NZ Sculpture OnShore 2018.
Water Lily Sculpture is the wind turning it into a sparkling beauty. However it’s the beauty that hides the turmoil within, leaving the wind spiraling out of control.

Where are the public most likely to see your artworks outside of NZ Sculpture OnShore?
At my gallery in Hamilton. Also on State Highway 23 at Metal Sculptures in Waitakaruru and Kura Gallery Auckland.
