DAVE RIEMER

COPPER WIND SCULPTURES

Angela Lensch Gallery is honored to be featuring the impressive outdoor copper wind sculptures by renowned, regional artist, Dave Riemer. You may recognize his mesmerizing copper wind sculptures from Egg Harbor’s ‘Harbor View Park’ as well as many private collections and galleries around the Midwest.   The flowering gardens of Angela Lensch Gallery now feature over a dozen different styles and sizes of Dave’s amazing  kinetic sculptures. From polished copper to green patina and “Tornados” to “Starflares”

Using the slightest breeze these sculptures move with graceful sweeping arms, changing with the light as they cast complex geometric shadows over your garden. Guaranteed for years of maintenance free motion while remaining outdoors all year round. They will even continue to turn with a full load of snow on them!

Watching their motion has been described to be ‘as relaxing as watching a lazy river’.

Every sculpture is shaped and assembled by hand, using the highest quality bearings, copper, brass and stainless steel. Built to last for decades without maintenance, they will provide a graceful, peaceful motion to any garden.

CHERYL BISHOP

THEOREM PAINTINGS

Local artist Cheryl Bishop creates timeless “Theorem Paintings” which include fruit, flowers and holiday themes. Theorem painting is an Early American decorative technique dating back to England as early as 1800. The style came into fashion between 1810-1840 when it became part of the curriculum of finishing schools for proper young ladies.  Although silk and watercolor paper was often used, cotton tea-stained cotton velveteen was the surface of choice. Oil pigments were applied by wrapping a small piece of cotton velveteen or wool around the artist’s finger.

Until recently the process of completing a Theorem Painting was time-consuming and tedious. The chosen design was traced, separated into stencil overlays and cut with an x-acto knife.  This is the process Cheryl was taught when she studied at Fletcher Farm School for the Arts and Crafts, in Ludlow, Vermont.  Theorem painting has enjoyed several periods of revival due to the members of the Historical Society of Early American Decoration. You will find it much more popular in the Eastern and Southern United States.

GABRIEL GUZMAN

3D CAST SILVER, BRASS & COPPER JEWELRY

Gabriel Guzman creates intriguingly beautiful jewelry. His designs have evolved from living in 5 different countries on 3 different continents.  You can see the respect and
beauty of each country exemplified in his pendants and earrings drawn from the ancient symbolism of these cultures. We can’t help but imagine that his Ph.D. in the field of Microbiology has only deepened his interest in detail and design for he has learned from the master, nature itself.

“The collection has afforded my designs smoother lines and crisp details.  And those smoother lines and details have brought a large selection of beautiful mandala necklaces and earrings in rich metals like silver and brass.  The transition and growth in my designs has found a men’s line of wearable steel that finishes your casual clothing perfectly and adds a nice dimension of the old world look.  As I like to flavor my work with looks from cultures around the globe, you will now also see some Rune, Celtic and Norse inspired jewelry.  I am now adding a few pieces with Swarovski crystals that catch the lights and shimmer beautifully.”

His process is best described in his own words,  “To make my designs come to life in the tridimensional world, every piece goes through a six-step process but I spend most of my time in the creative-designing state.  I consider the properties of a particular metal when I produce the first sketches; a lot of detail and fine curves are best achieved with precious metals (gold, silver, platinum), polished semi-precious metals (brass or bronze), or with metal plating (gold, or rhodium) on a base of polished brass.  For less detail and a ‘rougher’ or antique look and texture, steel in different finishes (polished gold, polished bronze) would make the piece stand out.”

    We love our 3 large and intricate David Riemer Wind Sculptures and they add such beauty and grace to our garden. All of our neighbors and friends that visit feel like they are in “a sanctuary” as it is so peaceful with the Koi pond and these beautiful copper wind sculptures.
