To Wayne Trapp, the beauty of the cosmos was in its chaos, and the perfection and completion of the form can be found in the geometry of his artistic creation. The vigorous surface texture of ‘Geometry of the Cosmos’ alludes to the energy and movement of the artist. Trapp’s inquisitive and thoughtful nature propelled him and his career for over 40 years. He created monumental outdoor sculptures for museums, corporations, and schools as well as smaller scale works for private collections. A prolific artist, Trapp also enjoyed painting in order to provide an alternative outlet for his creative energy.
