Modern art has a unique way of accentuating the landscape. A visit to a recent architectural masterpiece museum showed trendy new designs as modern artists added to the ambiance through an addition of their pieces. One form that stood out was Kinetic wind sculptures which are designed to perpetuate the theme of art in motion as the wind gives life to the moving pieces. Wind art, also known as kinetic sculptures makes wonderful additions that can be customized to suit landscape themes from ultra modern to the most rustic. Abstract sculpture artists take the initial concept from their clients and transform the medium from which they work into unique art that is designed to complement the overall feeling of the environment.
The creative imagination of a kinetic sculpture artist
Austin kinetic sculpture artist Jim LaPaso explains that he is inspired by the notion of taking heavy steel material and transforming it into lovely creations of art in which the pieces are set into motion by the breezes that blow. He is consistently using his imagination and the knowledge gained in his extensive training to bring new ideas to life through his creations (Kinetic Sculpture, 2014). As with many sculpture artists who take pride in their work, Lapaso has taken care to ensure that each piece is durable and will withstand the elements for years to come.
Uses for kinetic art
Kinetic art is not only aesthetically pleasing to view, it also lends a whimsical element to any decor. More commonly placed outside to catch the breeze, it can also be used as indoor embellishment. Pieces range from tabletop versions to large pieces that reach the ceiling, depending upon the tone of the environment. Kinetic art is appropriate for large business environments, charitable foundations, as memorials and as personal art pieces to enhance the decor both inside and outside of homes. They quickly become conversation pieces.
Materials used in kinetic art
Frequently, stained glass and other materials are used to catch sunlight and reflect the wide spectrum of colors that are produced as the rays move through the glass. The element of motion can be conveyed whether the pieces are actually moving, or remaining stationary because of the design and flow employed by the artist. Copper, wood and steel are commonly used in the design and construction of the base, and internal structure of the pieces with other materials used to create more intricate designs. It is common to see pieces which have painted elements that complement themes and decorating schemes of the environment.

As you might have seen with the link above, LaPaso's sculptures are for sale. His one of a kind creations are inspiring and come from his progressive and talented imagination. Lapaso has an ongoing thirst for developing his already amazing craft further and is constantly seeking to find new and innovative ways to create the sense of abstraction and motion in his work. With progressive ambitions, LaPaso's work is consistent and forward moving. The artist also designs and constructs custom pieces to help suit the unique tastes of his patrons.
