Artist Spotlight - Sean M. Gillespie
Sean is a Denver artist and his inspiration is captured from travel, architecture, landscapes and unexpected details of the world around us. He sees everyday life as a composition and simplifies his observations into line, rhythm, shape and movement, which provides a visual vocabulary to create designs while imbuing each sculpture with elegance and personality.

"I give wood new purpose as it records the movement of my hands, capturing my aesthetics, values and focus in that moment. In that way, I use my carving tools like a painter uses a brush. Gestures and strokes reveal pattern and form, communicating subtle beliefs and assertions about what I see as relevant." – Sean M. Gillespie
