Evolving themes representative of William Paul Gaetjens' body of work. Expressions in metal, oil paint, and pastel.

About The Sculpture

Mr. Gaetjens metal sculptures reflect his work ethic as well as his nomadic past, with each piece in a series building on to the next, mapping a new uncharted territory.

These three-dimensional forms are deliberately raw and rhythmic, devoid of color, echoing ancient form and primitive language. As individual works of art, each piece serves as a blueprint that can only be fully appreciated when subjectively filtered through one's own experience, intelligence and imagination.

About The Artist

William Paul Gaetjens was born in Long Beach, CA, in 1946, to a family with a long tradition of working in metal. An early interest in art led to a creative mastery of the medium, with studies at the California College of Arts and Crafts and The DeYoung Museum School. In the 1970's, he worked as an iron worker on the Alaskan Pipeline. This real world experience influences his art today.
