Images on Steel - Our New and Exciting Art!
You may know Augello's Welding and Fabrication for being the best welder at the Lake of the Ozarks, but did you know Bob Augello is also an artist? His newest endeavor, Images on Steel, is a collection of stunning works of art carved into raw steel. These are one of a kind, handcrafted images that are carved into steel.
Steel carvings are a new and exciting art form. Detailed and soulful images are carved into a piece of raw steel to create a stunning piece of art. The area that has been carved becomes highly reflective. This is a stark contrast to the surrounding dark and dull surface of the steel. The 2 different polarities create a binary effect of light versus dark. The image not only reacts with the surrounding surface but also with the light in the room. This gives the carving depth and the appearance of motion.
Not only does the light create a 3rd dimension to the carving, but the reflective areas seem to change as you move about the carving. The light bounces and dances on the surface of the image, drawing your attention and changing depending on your viewpoint. The interaction between the carving, the light, and the viewer, creates a beautiful optical effect unachievable with any other medium.
Steel carvings are the type of artwork you must interact with to fully appreciate their beauty. You can influence your own perception of the image by simply moving about it. Changing the position of your eyes relative to the carving can reveal details previously hidden by your former perspective. Some people say that the image looks like its moving!We have many pieces for sale and are always adding to our inventory. We can also create custom pieces of art for you and your loved ones.
