Metal, Painted Steel

Artspace Warehouse (Los Angeles)
Inspired by dance and weightlessness, Granville Beals' industrial metal sculptures include castoff metal fragments which he manipulates to defy the expectation of the medium. Beals is passionate about repurposing raw industrial scrap metal to create his art – which he views as a unique form of recycling. The process of reusing and manipulating materials that might otherwise be destined for the foundry presents unique challenges that spark his creative impulses.
This balanced, industrial sculpture is 46 inches high by 8.75 inches wide and 8 inches deep. Beals used painted steel as the medium for this artwork. The date and artist's signature are located on the sculpture's base. This sculpture can be displayed easily on any flat surface, both indoor and outdoor. If outdoors, artwork may develop a natural patina over time. 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.
“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.

Abstract sculpture artist Granville Beals was born and raised in Glens Falls, New York.
His sculptures use raw industrial scrap and metals which he manipulates to defy the expectation of the medium. While he fabricates much of his work from new pieces of select metals, he is passionate about repurposing industrial scrap to create his art – which he views as a unique form of recycling. The process of re-purposing and manipulating materials that might otherwise be destined for the foundry presents unique challenges that spark his creative impulses.
