Michael Rex (Hooker) is a multi-dimensional artist whose recent exploration into creating Wire Sculptures has resulted in a series of dramatic pieces that tease the imagination along many paths
These pieces show an evolution in his range from the pure simplicity of wire forms in classical shapes to the more complex ‘forms within forms’ that suggest a deeper inspiration
The shapes are biomorphic, derived from all types of life forms. Each changes as the light and air strike them; when lit at night and casting shadows on the walls around them the effect is magical
Michael’s pieces are created by hand , mostly with 20 gage wire looped in continuous forms. Some are executed in annealed wire and others are in insulated copper to preserve the colour of the wire.
Michael has also created copper pieces in uninsulated wire that can be hung out of doors and will develop the greenish-blue patina seen on older copper pieces
These pieces are truly incredible and a must for any art collection, these pieces are also height adjustable
