http://www.georgesherwood.com. George Sherwood, Kinetic Sculptor. Wind and Light - Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Summer 2008, Boothbay, Maine.
Sherwood's sculptures are "based on movement that is both subtle and obvious. At times it appears his sculptures do not move at all, and at other times they are a flurry of activity reminiscent of the tall swaying plumes of late-season cimicfuga in an autumn breeze." His work is made exclusively of stainless steel, the reflective qualities of which integrate the sculpture into its environment. Wind speed and direction, shades of light, time of day, precipitation, and seasonal color transform the qualities of light and movement. As stated by curator June LaCombe, his sculpture, "exemplifies art for an ecological age." Further, she states, "[Sherwood's] sculpture celebrates botanical forms and patterns in nature with proportional harmony."
Sherwood's work is part of the permanent collection at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay, Maine, and the Southern Vermont Art Center in Manchester, Vermont. In 2004, he exhibited at Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site in Cornish, New Hampshire and in 2009 at the Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston, Massachusetts. In 2007 he was awarded the Lillian Heller award for Contemporary Art at Chesterwood in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Sherwood is a member of Boston Sculptors Gallery and the Royal Society of British Sculptors. He is represented in collections throughout the United States and Europe.
Sherwood lives and works in Ipswich, Massachusetts.
