"I first saw their works over 30 years ago. It produced in me an intense pleasure, which was partly the effect of its complex yet elegant mechanical nature and partly the relentless energy expressed in its perpetual motion," Sears wrote in his artist statement. "Today I experience ever more pleasure from designing and creating kinetic sculpture, and find it interesting to note what has come to characterize my particular style within the form, and which I continually strive to achieve: simplicity, elegance, and linearity."
The Benjaman Gallery show, "A Delicate Balance," is the first local exhibition of Sears' work in more than two decades. It will feature new moving sculptures and mobiles and remains on view through Oct. 3. Call 886-0898 or visit www.thebenjamangallery.com
