William Soltis, Divergence

Cuyler Gore Park, Brooklyn

Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.


Divergence is a sculpture about experimentation with the human form, positive and negative relationships, and the interplay between the figure and a sculptural environment. In his art, William Soltis experiments with shapes, images, patterns, and lines, allowing the construction process to create the idea, rather than forcing a completely formed idea into becoming an object. As a subject, the human figure lends itself well to this open process. It can be left representational or made abstract. Its form can be smooth, angular, sharp, or curved, with active, passive, or emotive gestures. He often works with welded metal due to its versatility, permanence, and strength and ability to survive indoor, outdoors, in gardens, or urban settings equally well.
