Artist William Rhodes Feng Shui Series brings together his journey as an artist. His dynamic works of art are composed of properties designed to create positive energy. Equally talented as an artist, craftsman and furniture maker his pieces in the Feng Shui Series defy such categories as painting, sculpture, furniture or accessory; the works are all inclusive.
Abstract paintings on glass are gentle explosions of color rimmed in gold and mirror fragments. Wall art created with such depth and form that it could be categorized as sculpture. Wall mounted sculptures can contain secret compartments. All works are executed with the fine craftsmanship of a skilled furniture maker and the eye of an artist and sculptor.
Rhodes travels to Africa, Asia, Central & South America influences his work. He infuses a non-Western approach to furniture and art by creating utilitarian objects that are works of art. His choice of materials, colors and method of building and design reflect an Eastern view. Rhodes believes the spirit and characteristics of materials lend themselves to a particular piece of art. Recycled materials are an important component of his work.
