Sculpture of Dennis Heimbach and David Valentine
June 7 – September 19, 2017
The human-scale, sculptural steel forms of two Wisconsin sculptors form CAM’s 2017 outdoor summer sculpture series. Fluid Forms features the sculptural work of Dennis Heimbach, Middleton, and David Valentine, Sturgeon Bay. Heimbach's gracefully attenuated, sweeping forms in stainless steel closely relate to the art of dance and music. The highly finished surfaces enhance the aesthetic of Heimbach’s fluid forms. By contrast, Valentine’s steel forms show a natural oxidation, creating a rich, dark brown finish on his works. Valentine’s sculptural forms show a strong sense of flowing movement and also precise geometry which frames a contrasting focal point that is often anchored within a void or negative space.
Fluid Forms is made possible through the generous support of Flagstone Landscaping.
