Upon looking at this bold abstract metal sculpture, you would never guess that manipulating metal into loops and curves is such a difficult and time consuming task. With the sweeping curves and overlapping layers, Nicholas Yust has made this technique look absolutely effortless. The crimson ribbon drapes across the metal panel as if it were made from the shiny satin of a Christmas bow. This effect is created by over a decade of experience, skill, and knowledge, combined with the raw talent of the artist. Of course, no Nicholas Yust piece would be complete without one of his signature ground metal backgrounds. ‘Accretion’ features a shiny metal background with a hand ground cross hatch pattern, a perfect place to display the magnificently molded metal ribbon.
As you look through the photos in the gallery, you will notice that the three-dimensional (3D) ribbon casts a beautiful shadow across the metallic silver background. Watch this wall panel transform throughout the day as the sun travels across the sky, hitting the sculpture at different angles. You can create this effect yourself by using spotlights and lamps in a room that may not get enough natural light. Nicholas considers the way that light will change his art in each of his designs. He stated of his work that, “Each modern metal sculpture is evolved with the creation of energetic, flowing lines accompanied by a strategic consideration of the reflection of light to produce the resulting ultra-modern feel.”
One of the most versatile pieces in his abstract metal art collection, Nicholas Yust’s ‘Accretion’ is bold enough to stand alone in a large room, yet small enough to bring life and color to an office with limited wall space. Wherever you choose to display this unique and incredible piece of wall decor, you can have total confidence knowing that you and your guests will be thrilled at the sight of it.
