James Kitchen (Past Exhibit)
James Kitchen began welding metal sculptures in the nineties, and has been an ‘artist’ his entire life- finding creative outlets in poetry, rock balancing, stone carving, oil painting, and as a multi-instrumentalist. He has always been fascinated by history and theoretical physics. His art allows him to bring these passions to life; through recycling history left behind as rusted metal, and with that, creating his artistic interpretation of scientific theories of space and time. All of the metal in his sculptures come from local farms, antique stores, auctions, and occasionally a neighbor who leaves a pile of interesting objects in Kitchen’s driveway. He allows nature to mature and nature his sculptures into a rust patina and does little else to alter the metal.
