Derek Kinzett’s Wire Sculpture Revisited

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

Derek Kinzett was one of the first artists that I featured on The Figurative Artbeat. He recently email me to let me know he had a new video featuring the installation of four commissioned wire sculptures for Newstead Abbey, Nottingham. I wanted to share this new video with you.

I am continually amazed by the detail Derek achieves with wire alone. It would be so interesting to be able to observe him working.

Even more recent than the fabulous gardeners in the Rose Garden of Newstead Abbey is the first in his new “Love And Femininity” Collection, 2010. Titled “Lady and the Bicycle”.

From another angle she is just as amazing. I can’t wait to see the next sculpture in this series.

    Absolutely stunning!

  9. Love these wire bikes. I saw something along this line at Madrid Contemporary Art fair last year, full size figures on bicycles and all the parts were made of small shiny found object like typewriter keys, etc. I just found this site and will subscribe to it. I have a free big figurative artist network site as well that some of you may like to visit and or join. http://www.figurativeartist.org/. Cheers! Paula

    For sure, that sculptures are amazing. It takes so much time to achieve such a stunning results from the wire mesh. But there is even more time consuming technology to make wire sculptures. For example, russian sculptor Nadia Zubareva knits her life size sculptures from the stainless steel wire..
