“ Lost In Triangulation “ Created oct- nov 2019 Lost in triangulation is a steel sculpture created by Scott Wilkes. Its made from hundreds of steel plates welded together. She stands 37 inches tall and is 20 inches wide at the arms and is 12 inches deep. She is mounted on a steel plate which is 16 inches wide so she can stand with grace. She weighs 35 pounds. To me the artist : She is a representation of one of my dream creatures. Being narcoleptic I have extremly deep and detailed dreams and there are reoccurring themes and “ beings “ . . This being like so many I dream about are moving patterns and pieces which seem to float in the darkness. This particular one is almost made out of triangular and diamond shaped metallic crystals. She tends to show up when I am frustrated or having doubts about something. Her voice reminds me of a computer generated females voice thats been put through auto tune. She never tells me what i need to do but rather lays out multiple options and possible outcomes but not pushing me towards and particular one. She is almost like a living time machine who’s goal is to help educate me in times of doubt. She is a most welcome guest in my night world .

Hello, my name is Scott Wilkes a.k.a Ironheart. I am not going to have a stuffy bio, I’m going to just tell it like it is. I reside in the wonderful City of austin Tx and although a transplant I have been here since 1988. I think My artistic nature started pretty early in life, even before I started school. I was known for taking my toys and taking a hammer to them and then taking the parts and gluing them back together in new forms. It didn’t please my parents but when I started in on the neighbor kids toys that came to an end. After that I was more fond of old cardboard boxes and styrofoam packing materials.. Some shears , some duct tape, elmers glue.. and I would make all sorts of things. But those don’t hold up well. Through the years I did all sorts of things and never really thought of as it was art but in retrospect I guess in a way it was all a learning process that lead to my Art. It wasn’t until high school that I took an actual art class from a wonderful teacher. I wish I could remember That teachers name. She was pivotal to my world and introduced me to DALI , ESCHER , H.R GIGER. Later I found OLIVIA, SORAYAMA , VARGAS , NAGEL . They are all major influences. There are many more but they are the ones who stand out the most. This will lead into my education as far as art.. I didn’t get more than a couple years of actual teaching ,,, but what I did get, I think was substantial. And I took it from there. It did take 20 more years .. But I’m ok with that. I made a career out of welding which in a way is an art form itself which takes many years to truly master. After 20 years of it is when I began to sculpt for I finally felt confident with the medium along with having a life change that flooded me with emotions that I had to express in some sort of constructive fashion. I truly enjoy taking a medium which in so many ways is usually considered cold, hard, rigid and rough and making something which conveys softness, warmth, movement and flow. I also would like to say a special thank you to R.S.S and more specifically to Don White for the use of the hydraulic shear to cut all the pieces and his confidence in my artwork. He was the toughest boss I ever had, but helped shape me in to the man I am today... thanks Captain Cowboy !
