ABOUT

Gushee’s large, metal sculptures are created through weaving and textile techniques to convey ideas of ecology and social design. Using common construction and engineering materials, these original sources are wholly transformed – emerging into a more ephemeral organism while maintaining industrial qualities. 

His most recent series employ a conceptual and researched based methodology. The sculptures integrate and reflect themes found in architectural design and the natural and social sciences. 

The Emergence Series is a rigorous dedication to the complex systems that arrive through the repetition of a single act or gesture. The work resides in both the micro and macro realms - acknowledging that the smallest compositional elements are capable of profound gesture. 

Gushee's work encourages the viewer to acknowledge the shared experience of interacting within a space - made possible by the demonstration of continuity among our surroundings, our ideas, and our inventions.
