Gutter Snipes I, by Cal Lane

Yesterday I did a bit of gallery hopping around town with a friend, something I very badly needed to do. One of our stops was to visit Grunt Gallery, which is currently showing work by Cal Lane. She creates an illustrative style of cut metal sculptures using reclaimed industrial materials.

I was so taken with the installation, Gutter Snipes, that I forgot to photograph the other pieces in the gallery. The work is cut paper translated into metal on a grand scale. Something I hope to eventually achieve.

The installation is lit from the inside and amazing shadows are cast on the wall above. It is large enough to walk through.

Gutter Snipes I is on display at Grunt Gallery until March 23rd, 2013. I highly recommend you go see it.
