HAMMERED METAL
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 URBAN ABSTRACTS
 
 
Urban abstracts created from remnants of past machinery melded by hammer, torch, and scribe into one of a kind, visual rhythms of our modern life.
 
 
 

 
The hammer swings and impressions of a sprocket rise from the brass surface.  More swings and portions of the sprocket layer with strong arches of iron framework or the precise teeth of gears.
Just as a painter uses brush and pigment, David hammers decisive and irreversible marks onto sheets of brass.  Urban patterns are brought to a colorful life by torch and patina.  Finally, the urban collage is punctuated with repousse’ and bold, spontaneous, purely human scores - adding man’s voice to industrial, urban rhythms.
