MARE EQUUS ET FERRO MACHINA
Steven Torres thinks of his sculptures as relics from an alternate timeline. They are inspired by organic forms and mechanical devices merged into unique arrangements. While he uses a variety of new and scavenged elements integrated into the artwork, the repurposed items give the sculpture a hint of age. He searches for objects with a natural patina to enhance the character of the piece. It is his intention to make the work appear as if it could really function as a mechanical creature, rather than just be a static object. He starts with a general idea of what the sculpture should be, but the final design is dictated by the objects available as his palette.
