NEW WORKS by David David Figueroa in Mills Gallery and OUT OF SHADOW by Harry Messersmith in Lump Gallery.
OUT OF SHADOW by Harry Messersmith:
Harry Messersmith maintains a full-service bronze foundry and sculpture atelier in New Smyrna Beach, FL. “My work addresses the evolution of technology and its positive and negative effects upon the human condition. I strive to express within figurative sculpture a dynamic sense of balance that I believe must exist between science, and spiritual enlightenment in order for civilization to progress with dignity.” The artist is also inspired and intrigued by the natural and living things within it.
Messersmith is a grant recipient of the Andy Warhol Foundation which enabled him to study with Gio Pomodoro at the Atlantic Center for the Arts. He later traveled to Milan, Italy, to promote “The Bronze Exhibit,” a group exhibition that included three of his figurative bronze sculptures.
