Inspired by dance and weightlessness, Granville Beals' industrial metal sculptures are primarily about relationships. Concerned with form and abstraction, he does not merely manipulate metals to defy the expectation of the medium forms, but explores the relationship between the human figure and the landscape, color and texture, and most importantly between people at an individual and social level. He established innovative ways to push the boundaries of his technique, creating modern abstract geometric designs inspired by contemporary art and architecture as well as organic forms expressing the unique vision for humanity in a modern world.This red contemporary sculpture is 61 inches high, 18 inches wide, and 14 inches deep. Beals covered this welded steel sculpture with orbit blue powder coatt. It is signed by Beals on the base of the sculpture. This sculpture can be displayed easily on any flat surface. Free local Los Angeles delivery. Affordable Continental U.S. and International shipping available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.Granville Beals was born and raised in Glens Falls, New York. As a teenager, he moved to New York City where he received a Ford Foundation Scholarship to study and train at New York City Ballet’s School of American Ballet. The choreography of lines and the dynamics of negative space are elements that inform Beals’ work.Beals is passionate about re-purposing and manipulating materials that might otherwise be destined for the foundry. The unique challenges of these materials spark his creative impulses. “Metal embodies fascinating contradictions. Within its rigid and dense cold mass lives a warmth and a sensuality waiting to be revealed. The coarse, loud and often brutal process of working with metal combined with the fiery violence of the weld induces a state of surprising tranquility. I often sketch out my ideas for new pieces and other times simply wait patiently and listen for the material to give me instructions.”Beals’ work is held in both private and public collections. His public sculptures can be found in California, New York, and Internationally.

Granville Beals creates modern industrial metal sculptures inspired by the avant-garde realms of figurative contemporary art and architecture. Born in Glens Falls, New York, and raised amidst the poetry of dance and the ethereal concept of weightlessness, Beals crafts his sculptures as an intricate exploration of the relationships in human connection. His work is a symphony, choreographed with lines that dance through negative space, creating a dialogue between the tangible and the intangible.
Immersed in the influences of architecture and minimalism, Beals disrupts conventions. The artist uses steel and found metal objects, color and texture, to create a transformative fusion of art and space. Beals is a provocateur of thought, urging us to reconsider the tools, techniques, and ambitions that shape our relationship with buildings while championing the preservation of the landscapes we inhabit. He established innovative ways to push the boundaries of his technique, creating modern abstract geometric designs inspired by contemporary art and architecture as well as organic forms expressing the unique vision for humanity in a modern world.
Beals' artistic legacy extends beyond the private realm, with his works finding a home in public collections across California, New York, and internationally. Notably, his Holocaust Memorial sculpture stands as a poignant testament in Santa Clarita, California – a permanent embodiment of the profound impact his art has on the collective human experience.
