Totally Wired Sculptures with Brian Murphy

Totally wired sculpture with Brian Murphy at the Sawyer Free Library in Gloucester Massachusetts

Brian Murphy is a self-taught artist who started Totally Wired Sculpture in 2002. His work can be seen as lighthearted line drawings in the medium of steel wire. The goal of each piece is to create a kinetic movement from the tension in the wire so that the figures seem to dance or sway on their own and appear enlivened! Come to this demonstration and learn how to make your own!  No experience necessary an all supplies with be supplied.  Please register at the library.
