Will Clift at Gerald Peters Contemporary

Will Clift, Three Curling Back Over Each Other (2020), hardwood, carbon fiber composite, and automotive finish

Santa Fe native Will Clift’s abstract sculptures reflect the balance between motion and stillness, harmony and disruption. Using a variety of mediums, including wood and carbon fiber composites, he creates graceful, organic, linear constructs. A former environmental engineer, he’s been a working artist since 2006. “My sculptures are abstract but evocative, tied to familiar forms,” he says in a statement. “They explore the line between order and disorder, combining intersecting parts into a whole that stands in delicate equilibrium on a small foot.” Clift uses his training in engineering and the sciences to create works of inherent tension and that often appear to defy their materiality, such as steel and high- density concrete, in their graceful, nimble appearance. A solo exhibition of his work is on view through April 30 and can be seen onsite or on the gallery’s website.
