"Namib Nomads", African oryx gemsbok scrap metal sculpture by Frank Cole
Gemsbok are social antelope living in desert regions including the famous Namib Desert. Namib is of Nama origin which means "vast place" and stretches for more than 1,200-miles along the Atlantic coasts of Angola, Namibia, and South Africa.
Starting with reclaimed scrap metal and wood, Frank takes these simple discarded boring items and transforms them
into a beautiful new wildlife sculpture, cohesive from all angles This is the essence of strategic thinking.
Through textures and movement my goal is to allow the viewer to subconsciously fill in the gaps. A little cowboy rusty impressionism.
Metal is picked around old homesteads and working ranch's in the Western US as well from my travels around the world. My sculptures have featured reclaimed metal from Argentina, South Africa, Jamaica and Europe. There is not place I visit where I am not picking discarded rusty metal.
