FRINGE: Brian Wedgworth at Beyond Gallery
by Cayetano Garza Jr.
We caught up with local sculptor Brian Wedgworth during the reception for his latest show FRINGE, on display now through April 30, 2016 at Beyond Arts Gallery in Harlingen, TX.
During the interview Brian talks a little bit about his inspiration for the title of the show, some of his working methods, the excitement of working with different materials and the lasting inspiration of a beloved mentor.
Brian’s sculptural work combines traditional metalworking techniques with the reclamation and recycling of industrial parts and random metal to create works that transcend their material origins to bring his unique vision to life. In this latest series he returns to a subtle use of color to further accentuate the contrast between surfaces and textures.
