Since the year 2000, Eddie has devoted his time to sculpture. He was a member of the Chatham Artists Guild for several years, but has more recently focused on corporate and private commissions. His first major commission came in 2003 when he created “Mengembang” (in the Gallery-Commissions) for the Hilton Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. His studio is now at home on the Rocky River in Silk Hope, NC where Eddie lives with his wife, Gwen.
Eddie explains his approach to art and design: "An ongoing interest in the technical aspects of art and design heavily influence my work. Some of my pieces are organic in shape but many are geometric. I am most often drawn to opposing shapes and double images; the juxtaposition of line and form. My most recent metal work uses many of the same lines and shapes as my earlier work but with more authority and durability. You will find that I have worked to emphasize the structure and physical presence of my pieces by accentuating the connections of line and shape. I strive to illuminate the visual significance and beauty that can be found within the technical design of a piece."
Overall good estate condition; some spotting to metal.
