Readymades: Snap Shots:
sculpture, steel, stainless, 2009-11
Begun in 2009, this series comes from several drawings that include representations of natural objects, domestic items, workplace tools and steel boxes. The box, or cubi, was an element David Smith made famous in the '60s.
Like Smith, Steuart Bremner is welding steel and fixing elements in positions that would be imposible if they were not metal and not weldable.
Moment of Movement shows the tension between elements in the sculpture, and implies a moment, either the one just before collapse, or when all object are perfectly taught.
The pieces Sentry and Pendulum are the earliest works finished in this series, in 2010. The newest are wall pieces with fully round elements, and another group that are as flat as the 1/4 inch piece of aluminum foam-core board from which they are cut.
