Los Angeles, CA - DENK gallery is pleased to present, Heavy Metal, a group exhibition featuring the works by 17 contemporary artists whose works are made from various types of metal. Although most of the sculptures in the exhibition are not made from actual “heavy metals”, the nature of the artwork conveys expressive freedom and rawness that finds itself akin to the “Heavy Metal” music.

Outdoor sculpture is not normally thought of as expressive or experimental often limited by the process itself, historically being relegated to historical monuments. 

The artists in this exhibition work through numerous processes to create provocative sculpture pushing the limits of the various techniques. As a result, unusual forms are produced maintaining a spontaneity that is often lost on traditional outdoor sculpture. The artworks are placed in the gallery context creating yet another layer of interaction. Most sculpture shown in contemporary galleries are often not suited to be placed outdoors so an interior exhibition that focuses on metal sculpture creates an unusual dichotomy between the sculpture and the space.

The exhibition presents a fresh look at metal sculpture that exhibits the freedom and rawness normally associated with sculpture based on non-traditional materials.
