Some of Anthony Howe’s largest sculptures can be valued up to $400,000. In still pictures, these pieces of art might not seem like they warrant that much money, but when you see them in motion, you’re going to understand the price.
We’ve seen artists claim their pieces are capable of living a life independently before. While Howe uses some similar principles in his art, his aim isn’t to create new life… he wants to change yours.
When the wind powers Howe’s shining metal sculptures to start twirling in endless, repetitive motion, the complicated composure of metal pieces might remind you of something like a jellyfish, or maybe even a celestial being. The kinetic motion of these sculptures is truly mesmerizing, and watching one in motion could captivate a person for extended periods of times.
Howe’s goal with these complicated, labor intensive, and time consuming pieces is to make the viewer rethink, well, just about anything and everything. When you watch the repetitive movements and oscillations, even though you know the piece of art is doing the same thing over and over again, you can start to see different iterations of the movement depending on exactly where and from which angle you’re watching.
I’d love to sit and watch these sculptures in person. They’re incredible on screen, but I bet on the huge scale that they’re truly built to be, they’re even more entrancing.
