Hugo's Statement: "I love metal ... I love its multiformity ... Its dichotomy in being both flexible & maleable while providing an extremely rigid medium in its final form. Metal offers such soothing and elemental tones that complement any design -- modern to classic. All of my metal artworks incorporate the beauty and diversity of METAL as an integral element; And I use other mixed media elements along with learned techniques developed through decades of artistic experimentation to coalesce with and complement the inhernet beauty of the respective metal in each work.
I am a proponent of the belief 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), re-purposed materials and are all guided by my love of nature."
