Devin Borden Gallery- Paul kittelson show

I try not to miss  Paul's shows because they always make me feel good. His ability to find beauty in simple everyday objects and materials is beyond clever. Below are a few of my favorites.

 Fellow artist Daniel Calderon and a student of Paul's commented that the above piece references aging or life. With this comment in mind I re- looked at the piece. Now when I see this beautiful work I am reminded how important it is to stay grounded. With a stable footing the twist and turns, and the ups and down  life offers will not throw you off balance but will be what distinguishes ones life as exceptional.  There really is a beauty to a life well lived.  This will be a delightful sculpture for someone's contemporary collection.

Of course I loved this piece: wood grain with a hint of disco ball some of my favorite ingredients.

I do have a weakness for works on paper and the natural curve of this piece makes it a work on paper and sculpture. 

 

The opening was very crowded and it was hard to get good photos. Please post any photos you have on our sculpturehouston Facebook page.
