Rick LaPointe

 

“When viewers consider metal sculpture, it is often with the idea that welding is an industrial process and is therefore obliged to produce industrial forms; however, I like to improvise with steel. By using manufactured steel parts in an abstract way, I have created an expressionist assemblage exploring the unpredictable principles of deconstruction, accident, and balance, demonstrating the inevitable outcome of order.”

With a background in fine woodworking and blacksmithing, Lapointe is captivated by the malleability of steel and the unpredictable principles of deconstruction, accident and balance. A self-taught artist raised in Montreal with a background in fine woodworking and blacksmithing, Lapointe is captivated by the malleability of steel and explores the unpredictable principles of deconstruction, accident and balance.

The work of this Kingston-based sculptor is found in the Gananoque Sculpture Park in Ontario, and in private collections in Canada, the US and Australia.
