"I am interested in the relationship between nature and structural complexity, particularly relating to ‘free form’ architecture, where lines and shapes are approximated in order to create intricate geometric structures."

Tower of Code

"On the shores of the River lie flotsam piles of drift lumber ripe with visual history. I carve abstract hieroglyphics onto the surfaces of this lumber, adding to the conversation."

Steven Maeck

The Morning Star

The aesthetic intent of my work is not to create “ junkyard art ” but to take industrial artifacts and alter or recombine them in such a manner as to create work that is not only resonant and original but manifests the aura of having been created from base raw material , as in cast bronze . Of course there is , and should be , at least a subliminal sense of the processed heritage of the metal .

Single Rule

"The subtle curves of Single Rule reveals openings and recesses, the give and take of space, while maintaining an upright dignity and powerful presence. Constructed of three rectangular steel slabs, positioned into a fluid pose."

Resurgence

Powell enjoys creating art that requires the viewer to go deeper, to find the true meaning behind the mystery of the piece. “I like to do interesting themes that require some thought to its understanding,” he says.

When Love and Hate Collide

"When Love and Hate Collide" captures this false identity that people are trying to make themselves be. People put this mask on to cover up who they really are to make someone else accept them. I want this sculpture to be a reminder to people- Stop trying to be someone else. Be exactly who you are and you'll "fit in" or stand out (which is a good thing) just fine.

Circle of Life

The butterfly is a symbol of transformation, because of its impressive process of metamorphosis. By observing butterflies, we can relate to our own lives: moments of growing pains, times of hunger and vulnerability, moments of tremendous energy, expansion, wonder and amazement. They have the ability to amaze us and create a feeling of Joy.

Sculpt Siouxland is a private, non-profit organization of community leaders who are dedicated to engaging and educating the public on the potential of art in public spaces. Working with the support of area businesses, organizations and individuals, Sculpt Siouxland brings sculptures from throughout the upper Midwest to Sioux City. Beginning in 2012, Sculpt Siouxland and the Sioux City Art Center started a partnership on this growing project. The goal of the partnership was, and continues to be, allowing Sculpt Siouxland to dedicate itself to raising funds for the project while allowing the Art Center to oversee the artistic and administrative duties. The result has been an increase in the number, scale, and quality of the sculptures.
