Each sculpture is a three-dimensional painting of shifting light, drawing all the colors of the environment, pulling down the sky, drawing up the earth and gathering everything in between. Quietly, gently stirring the light, each is alive: no beginning and no end. —George Sherwood

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, which has reflective qualities that integrate the sculpture into its environment. Wind speed and direction, shades of light, time of day, precipitation, and seasonal color transform the sculpture.

CYNTHIA-REEVES in partnership with the Hudson River Park Trust, showed “Waves and Particles”, six seminal sculptures by Sherwood along the Hudson River in New York City in 2014. Currently, Every Water, an eight foot in diameter wall-based kinetic sculpture, is on public view at the San Diego Botanic Gardens through April 2017. His work is in the permanent collections of: The Currier Museum, Manchester, NH; The Dana Farber Cancer Institute 20th and 21st century Contemporary Art Collection in Boston, MA; Weisman Art Museum Public Art on Campus, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN; three large-scale works of Sherwood’s Wind Orchid series at City Creek, Salt Lake City; Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens; The Atlanta Botanical Gardens; and the Contemporary Sculpture Path at Forest Hills Educational Trust, among others. Public projects include a recent installation at the Christian Science Plaza reflecting pool in Boston; a 35‘ sculpture on the Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston; and a 24’ sculpture on view at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical campus in Hanover, NH.
