“The Feather” – Kirk Seese

Galvanized steel, Baltic birch plywood, acrylic paints, epoxy resin
3′ x 3′ x 10′

From the Artist:

“The Feather”, is the debut, signature sculpture from Kirk Seese, who has spent the last two decades painting murals under his llc, named BB Murals,( www.bbmurals.com). Four years ago, Kirk accepted a full-time position at ClimbZone, a New Zealand based company specializing in themed climbing walls. As Lead Designer, he has designed hundreds of themed climbing walls for the company and subsequently got a taste for creating in 3D! Recently, this experience has led him to explore other possibilities in public sculpture.

Using similar fabrication processes, the Feather is created by programming a CNC machine to cut the panels to shape out of MDO plywood. They are then sanded, routed and primed, and using a large format, flatbed printer, the swirling, stained glass looking designs are directly printed on top. A final coating of hard, self-leveling, epoxy resin is applied to both sides to withstand the elements.
Kirk is excited to step over the threshold into this new artistic format, from 2D to 3D, and is equally excited to share the Feather with Johnson City!
