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

Inspired by color

If you live in a design-centric world like I do, you are used to seeing various sets of color matching books laying around fanned out like peacocks. You may even have a drawer full of extra color chips stashed for a rainy day. Recently, while cleaning out my office, I came across said drawer and wondered how I could put the scraps of color to use. The resulting mobile "When the Leaves Turn" and stabile "Tints" are what sprang to mind. These will be auctioned for charity, but may have opened a fun door for me...
