Kurt Dyrhaug

(Beaumont, Texas) 

Cast iron and enamel paint 

Kurt Dyrhaug’s sculpture and drawing employs agricultural and nautical imagery from his experiences living Southeast Texas. His work evokes the form and function of industrial elements, providing new associations of meaning. Reconstructing forms of this nature alludes to a variety of interpretations and potential applications based on the relationships of scale and materials. These familiar forms hold the potential for creating a variety of enigmatic and suggestive propositions that solicit interpretation. Dyrhaug’s research incorporates 3D printing and metal coatings which explore outdoor sculpture on a smaller scale.
