"Metropolis" ● Metal Art ● 30"x30"x6"

Description: Have you ever worked on a tedious, time consuming, project which, once completed, became part of you -- A source of pride and personal achievement. If there ever was a labor of love then "Metropolis" is definitely one. From first sketch on paper to the final step of securelyly screwing the wall hanger on the back, "Metropolis" represents over 30 hours of labor. Yet, like an excellent complicated mega jigsaw puzzle, every minute was enthralling and fulfilling.

Metropolis incorporates approximately 900 square inches of 2" square hand cut pieces of Aluminum, Copper and Mirrored Stainless Steel. I individually etched each copper and aluminum piece to add more contrast to the stainless steel pieces and more overall visual appeal. The individual towers come from 2" square repurposed hollow wood frame which I individually cut to size. The towers and frame were hand painted with a silver hammer finish giving it a rough texture (adding extra contrast from the smooth and elemental feel of the individual protruding metal pieces).

The metal art is mounted on a gallery thick custom box frame. A proprietary clear coat finish was applied to the artwork for protection.

Elements Used: Aluminum, Copper, Stainless Steel, repurposed wood composites and metal hammer paint.

Size & Weight: 30" Wide x 30" High x up to 6" Deep - Floats 1/2" off the wall when hung. Weighs about 35 pounds (shipping weight higher).

Signed Certificate of Authenticity: This artwork will include a Certificate of Authenticity (COA). The COA will include pertinent information about the artwork and my signature.


Display & Lighting: This artwork is designed for display in an indoor environment. Because of metal's natural reflective nature, a variety of lighting sources will compliment this artwork in aesthetically pleasing ways. This piece is ready to hang as soon as received. A heavy duty mounting bracket is securely attached to the back of the piece and matching drywall mounting hardware is included with the artwork.

Please Note: The sample image(s) have been compressed for optimal web download and do not do full justice to viewing the artwork in person. Slight color variations may also be a factor due to color variations from monitor to monitor -- Best efforts are made to take clear photographs of each piece for your review.

Also, there are mirrored stainless steel pieces in this artwork which will reflect hues and color tones from the room -- For the exception of the copper pieces, the color tones you see on the photo are reflections from the studio the photo was taken in.

Recycle_1a.jpg REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE!  I love nature and I am a strong believer that minor changes can exponentially lead to a major positive impact. I do my best to recycle, repurpose, reuse and be the best conservationalist that I can be in my personal life and in my artwork. I purchase metals from mills that produce the bulk of their product from recycled materials and I always look for Earth friendly options to create my metal art. Many of my artworks also utilize "found objects" (recycled materials) and are guided by my love of nature. The majority of the elements that constitute this artwork come from recycled industrial metals and repurposed materials.

    Metal Art Review

    Posted by Elizabeth & Mike on 20th Apr 2010

    Viewed metal artwork at the Spring Arts Festival. It is spectacular. The 3D has great visual appeal. Each piece is unique and provides a high level of interest. Can't imagine ever getting tired of studying these works of art. I purchased "fragrance" metal wall art at festival. Great combination of metal texture, color, and depth.
