Ursula Perry’s mobiles are made of a variety of materials primarily consisting of stainless steel wire forms, and sheet metal. These “linear sculptures” introduces the contour line into the sculpture as elements unto itself.
Each original work of art is completely hand-crafted from scratch, incorporating pivoting lengths of stainless wire cantilevers with fulcrums set in position. The composition of interesting geometric shapes happen randomly and are arranged and rearranged in space by chance, often inspired by moving forms from air current in her studio, and of course, the scientific method and creative process in the artist's mind.
Ursula’s figurative linear structures are dynamic abstract forms set in motion by perfectly balanced contemporary works of art known as mobiles and stabiles.
