“ Heavenly Body “

Completed Dec. 2019

Heavenly body is a steel sculpture created by Scott Wilkes made by welding hundreds of multi sized steel discs and small steel rods together. The colors were created by “flame painting “ which is where heat is applied to the piece via a torch to discolor the bare steel. The color is somewhat faint in low light but shows well in direct or sunlight. She stands 34 inches tall x 19 inches wide x 12.5 inches deep and weighs 45.2 pounds. She is mounted on a steel plate 16” x 12.5 “ so she may stand with grace.

To me the artist:

She is a representation of my dream world. Many galaxies and colors that float within my mind. I colored her in a way to try and express the colors of space and its randomness . It seemed obvious to me that the shape of the boundaries of my dream world would hold the form of a woman which my mind so loves to focus on and form when awake.

Scott was born in the early 70s on the east coast. Son to a chemical engineering professor and a school teacher. After bouncing around many states and even more cities Scott landed on his own in Austin Texas at the age of 17. He attended college by day and created leatherwork by night. The leatherwork lead to a show that was created basically by accident to feature his work in a fashion show. He then wrote, directed and performed in that show on on a weekly basis for 14 years. Then life changed dramatically due to a family tragedy and the show closed and Scott went to work as a roughneck welder for the next 10 years. While raising his daughter alone on a shoestring budget he began to sculpt with scrap steel from the shop to cope and keep busy.  He is self taught and  has been sculpting now for about 5 years and his primary subject is the female form. His goal is to take the chaos of a rigid medium thats cold, hard and sharp and pattern it in to soft flowing forms , smooth to the touch that convey warmth and emotion.
