Leaf Skeleton

Tim Hawley

Artist's statement


I am an artist that has explored nearly every medium. I am able to cut almost any material.  I own two water jet machines which I use to create my art. I also use a high tech Wacom drawing monitor that I use to freehand with. I have two aluminum leaf sculptures that displayed at the Milwaukee Art Museum. With this Leaf Skeleton I am attempting to take it to the next level by making it larger and thicker. Additionally, I torched the leaves to make the sculpture feel as if they are moving in the wind.
