M&T Bank: Wind, Waves and Light: Art in Motion by George Sherwood

This unconventional exhibition features large-scale, stainless steel sculptures that move and change with the wind. View the sculptures and learn more about their connections to art, science, and nature. An artist and engineer, George Sherwood creates kinetic sculptures that evoke shimmering leaves, flocks of birds, schools of fish, and waves of light and water.

American sculptor George Sherwood explores aesthetic systems of space, time, and the dynamic relationships of objects in motion. The choreography of each piece is governed by a set of basic movements, facilitated by an arrangement of aerodynamic surfaces connected by rotational points. His work is usually made of stainless steel, the reflective qualities of which integrate the sculpture into its environment. For his outdoor works, wind speed and direction, shades of light, time of day, precipitation, and seasonal color transform the qualities of light and movement of the sculpture. Sherwood was born and raised in the coastal town of Fairfield, Connecticut. He now lives and works in Ipswich, Massachusetts, and holds degrees in both art and engineering.
