Description:  'Fusion' is one of Nicholas Yust's most celebrated metal creations. The smooth, arching grind pattern that graces the surface has quickly become one of his trademarks. The key to the consistent sweeping pattern across the surface of the metal is his solitary positioning: the artist must keep his feet planted at the center of the panel and grind from one side to the other without taking a step. This ensures a smooth pattern without imperfections - even the slightest motion with his feet will affect the angle and arc of the grind pattern, causing a bump or a hiccup in the otherwise flawless metallic finish.  Something that Nicholas, being a perfectionist with his artwork, will not tolerate...

The wide, comfortable wave with the tight bend is comes to life through a careful process involving hundreds of perfected arcing motions with an air-powered handheld grinder.  It is impressive how the artist is able to achieve such an elegant, artistic display using materials and tools commonly associated with hard, industrial labor.  This piece is the epitome of the "Wow Factor" - you will be amazed at the perceived depth of the pattern and the motion of the wave as you move from one side to the other, watching the light reflect and cascade along the path of the grinds.

The 'Fusion' metal artwork can be made-to-order in any size and from any material.  Click on the thumbnail image to the left to see an example of 'Fusion' in copper, aluminum and bronze.  Note: the stainless steel version looks essentially identical to the aluminum version in photographs - in person you can see more of a blue/gray undertone in steel versus a white/silver undertone in aluminum.

Variations of the Fusion piece are featured as a contemporary accent in homes, businesses and modern artwork galleries worldwide. It is even prominently displayed on the set of the popular Sci-Fi television program called 'Eureka' as a modern wall sculpture in the characters' headquarters.

Beautiful FusionI wanted to let you know that A.R.T. installed my Fusion pieces yesterday. They look beautiful, thank you so much for all your help. (see photos attached)

Please also let Nicholas know that the Art Resource Team (A.R.T.), Inez Baird and husband Tony, did an excellent job of installing. I would highly recommend them.

Thanks again for working with me to get exactly what I wanted. Your time and attention was very much appreciated. I LOVE it !!!

Fusion pieceWe are very happy about the artwork, but will have to wait a couple of months to hang it in our new bedroom. We are now still in the process of building.

All the best and happy holidays!

Absolutely FantasticThe five-panel wall sculpture has arrived safely in Cairns! It is absolutely fantastic - we are so delighted. We are currently contemplating how to display it to best effect - and then we'll just wait for the compliments. I have already been on to Nicholas' website to see what I may buy next... Thank you so much for your easy communication and friendly manner. Written by Carol on Tue 24 May 2011 6:27:39 AM GMT
