About the Artwork
Like the name suggests, a whirlwind of varied bare metallic spheres, lines and squares that invites the eye upward to its six foot height.
About the Artist
David Edgar has been an exhibiting sculptor since 1975. He has served as the director of the Arts Administration program for the University of North Carolina Charlotte, as well as serving as Crealde’s School of Art’s Executive Director between 1984 and 1989. His welded steel construction is made from corten steel, ensuring the pieces will seal themselves with their own evolving rust skin. Compositionally, David’s focus is on changing sculptural planes to encourage the viewer to observe the different perspectives that emerge as daylight travels over the sculpture, forming dramatic to more subtle casts shadows.
