About the Artist - George Tobolowsky
"As native of Dallas, Texas, I earned my business degree and law degree from Southern Methodist University in the early ‘70s. While at SMU, I also minored in Sculpture studying under Texas artist James Surls, who became my mentor and friend. But upon graduation, I entered the business world, and spent the next several decades garnering a successful business and legal career. I was not producing art myself until about seven years ago when I felt an inspiration and with the encouragement of my mentor Surls; I embarked on my own artistic path. My output over the past seven years has been prodigious: over 300 sculptures. I make abstract metal sculptures from steel and stainless steel "found objects". These found objects however, are not of the everyday sort, but rather bulky industrial metal castoffs that I scour scrap yards and fabrication plants to find. I rarely alter theses metal pieces but instead work to fit the individual scraps together - much like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle - into balanced compositions. My sculptures are one part assemblage and one part recycling, which follows closely with the philosophy of another early artistic influence, Louise Nevelson."
