Internationally renowned sculptor Tom Joyce unveils his latest creations. Runs through 12/31.
Santa Fe, New Mexico—Internationally renowned sculptor Tom Joyce, who has innovated and elevated the art and science of forging iron to newly expressive heights, unveils his latest creations at the Center for Contemporary Arts on July 28 in a solo exhibition that promises to be one of the most important contemporary art events of Santa Fe’s summer arts season.
Tom Joyce: Everything at Hand continues Joyce’s explorations of iron as a profoundly symbolic material whose regenerative matter, aesthetic malleability, and cultural meaning resonate locally and globally at the deepest levels of history and contemporary life. Stretching from CCA’s Tank Garage to its new outdoor sculpture garden, the exhibition features new works by Joyce influenced by his many years of working with industrially forged remnants and byproducts of large scale manufacturing. In addition to forged and cast iron sculpture, the show highlights iron-inspired photography, video, charred drawings and mixed media installations, including experimental bodies of work in materials newly utilized by Joyce.
