Artist's Statement

"My hanging mobiles are ever-changing works of art. The delicate balance between gravity and the gentle currents in the air around us cause the mobiles to twist and bend, appearing to give them a life of their own. They are constantly redefining not only the positive shape of the mobile itself, but the negative spaces that surround the sculpture.

I like to think of my mobiles as a reminder that although life is ever-changing, one can always find beauty and joy in it. All one needs to do is stay balanced and bend slightly with the breeze."

-Steve DeSpirito

My Methods

I'm often asked about my techniques and construction methods. In response, I'll explain that in most cases I keep my work as clean and simple as possible. Most of my work includes no glue, welding, nuts or bolts. Just simple shapes and bent wire. A good analogy to me is music, anyone can make simple sounds, but arranging the sound into something musical is an art. Have you ever really listened to "Moonlight Sonata" and heard how simple it is? Yet it's a great and enduring work of art. I strive for the same simplicity and beauty of form in many of my hanging mobiles.
