5 in PR...


"5 in PR"
This is a sculpture I finished the other day inspired by some of the noserides I got @ Maria's while in PR. The base is a piece of paulownia. The hand hammered copper wave has a patina. The board is made from 7 strips of red oak and mahogany with a maple fin. I placed this one on a spring like the dashboard riders. The combination of the surfer on the spring and the flexible wave give this sculpture great kinetic movement.

These turned out SO awesome Jamie.

Your use of materials keeps creating this wave of orgasmic flow and texture.

I just don't know how else to describe it.

To have a Jamie Kelly sculpture in your home is pretty much screaming..."I'm the coolest person on the block...NO. NO...wait. I'm the coolest person in town. Well...(looking around)..I'm actually
the SMARTEST AND COOLEST person in the world!!!"

Seriously ridiculous.
SJAC....re-conspires!!!!
