“One of my goals has been to make scenarios that anthropomorphize birds in motion. Recently I’ve been devising poses in which birds perform dance moves. Co-action Affect is owls on Broadway.”
Dave Dando is originally from Australia.
His sculpture focuses on the intersection between the natural world’s inhabitants, degrees of domesticity and industrial, man-made objects. He feels that fabricated sheet metal, contrasted by milled wood usually, provides the best opportunity to achieve the desired juncture he seeks. It also provides the fluidity needed to realize the balance be- tween liquidity and solidity found in the three subjects of Co-action Effect.
“I want the subjects to be graceful and fluid without easily enabling the observer to identify the materials and their origins. Form and proportion are important, but more so is the balance I hope to achieve in all my pieces.”
