Biography from Art d' Art LLC Fine Art Consultants:
American born metal sculptor Kevin Caron (b. Connecticut, 1960), is primarily concerned with exploring the mathematical relationships between rhythm, repetition and their corresponding spaces, as they pertain to the organization of his compositions.  Influenced by M.C. Escher’s interlocking and impossibly interdependent elements, Caron’s sculptures are often constructed in precariously balanced, twisting poses of great tension.  

Much like Gerald Murphy or Alfred Wallis, Kevin Caron began making art fairly late in life, as his sculptures emerged quietly, instinctively and free from tyranny of superordinate art professors and historical conventions.  

Caron’s kinetic, sound, water and free standing constructionist sculptures attempt to converse in the primordial language of mass, volume, line, and movement, influenced by the Southwest terrain and its desert.

Kevin Caron works and lives with his wife in Phoenix, Arizona.

ARTIST STATEMENT
Artist Statement

My first love was for machinery. Its immaculate steel composition and constructed perfection afforded orchestrated movement, followed by the joy of solitude. Those passions came together while riding my motorcycle, when I first began to feel and see Time, rather than identify with its metaphoric measurements.

Although I did not know it then, my education as an artist seems synonymously tied to the roads I have consumed on a motorcycle and later behind the wheel of an 80,000 pound semi truck. I spent more than 30 years meditating and molding shapes in my mind, so when an opportunity to sculpt my first piece presented itself, the transition from mental manipulation to the creation of real steel structures was seamless and effortless.

Now I focus on the sensuality of shapes, the gentle rise and fall of their sides and junctures. I enjoy the challenges of creating monumental public works, which allow me to work in a scale and variety of proportion that smaller pieces sometimes resist. I download shapes and spaces from my mind that were already analyzed, conceived and cataloged many years ago before I even knew I wanted to be a sculptor and let my hands become an extension of my mind, very much like I do when I am riding.

In my work I seek out illusion in contour and its capacity, treating unusual intersections as purposeful composition. And although I am still unsure if knowledge is imparted by a creative force rather than acquired and accumulated through hard work, I believe that even the most commonplace experiences accumulate into unanticipated works of art.
