Title of Piece #1: A Delicate Balance
Media: steel
Dimensions: 50"H x 16"W x 8"D
Retail Price: $2,950 + tax

Artist’s Statement: This is one of my first freestanding steel sculptures in a time of "discovery." A fun piece I am now expanding upon.

 

Title of Piece #2: Rising Sun
Media: steel
Dimensions: 113"H x 24"W x 12"D
Retail Price: $5,300 + tax

Artist’s Statement: "Rising Sun" came together in a moment of extreme inspiration and distress. I've loved watching the patina evolve and essentially continue to create itself.

 

Title of Piece #3: Hanging By a Limb
Media: steel
Dimensions: 7'H x 1'W x 1'D
Retail Price: $4,000 + tax

Artist’s Statement: The light and shadows playing with the voids, along with the subtle kinetic movement are as important to this piece as the materials used.

Artist’s Bio: Steve Shigley, "Shig", is a self taught abstractionist with a "no-rules" approach to art and unique processes that define and inform all of his work. His entry into the world of art began with his now highly regarded Joshua Tree Sculptures. An ever-evolving artist, he is now fully immersed in the world of steel. His love for the material has turned his attention wholeheartedly to creating custom furniture and large scale indoor/outdoor sculpture.

His work can be found in private collections from California to New York and The Desert House Gallery in Palm Springs. "Shig" has recently been invited to attend the Artist in Residency program at the Chateau Orquevaux outside of Paris in 2017. He currently resides and creates in the high desert of California.
