“Over my whole career, I’ve been in search of freedom of shape. And what I mean by that is that I don’t preconceive. I want the widest possible jungle of shape to explore. So, I want as much shape as possible. Some of that comes from technology. All the different shapes of the world aren’t just floating around to have. They come from different things and different sources”- Bruce Beasley
Though not intended to represent any specific natural form, Beasley’s bronze sculptures represent a distinctive body of work which reflect his love of nature, geology, and landscape. These compositions expand from the cube form, growing vertically and horizontally, creating intricate intersections of planes and shape. In both form and color one can imagine a relationship to tectonic plates, the mountains of the Rockies, the mesas of the Southwest, or to caves or crystals.
