Jim Harper's sculpture relies on his strong sense of line. Complex curves wrap and dance around one another, building forms which range from pure abstractions to anthrophromorphic shapes. Light and shadow plays across the faces of his sculpture as you walk around it. Compound curves, sharp edges, soft voluminous forms, and abrupt changes in direction create a contrapuntal harmony of form and line.
Harper is equally at home working in wood, stone, and metal, and is now also working a new series of water sculptures. His waterworks create multi-sensory environments, constantly changing with the music and forms created by the water. He plays with the forms which can be generated by the water, and the reflection of light off the constantly moving surface.
