Peter Forakis

Teaching in the California School of Fine Arts, Peter Forakis moved from painting to sculpture in the 1960’s. Atlanta Gateway, made in 1966 is an example of his interest in geometric form and in particular the tetrahedron (A four faced triangle).

Discussing Peter Forakis during last years Field project brought his work to my attention and his influence is clear in the first stage of my Square bar, painted. His use of Steel, stainless steel tube and sheet give an industrial tone consistent with Minimalism and the fabrication techniques the associated artists employed.
