About Artist: James McNabb is a Philadelphia based artist working primarily in wood. His creations of cityscape inspired sculptures explore sociological concepts regarding transformations of cities and urban landscapes, their beauty, uniqueness, and overdevelopment. In his sculptures, McNabb uses scrap pieces of wood, some with very unique and alluring characteristics, that are contextualized to draw new meaning out of the material and force the viewer to create his or her own perspective of the urban landscape. McNabb blends traditional woodworking technique with experimental mark making using a bandsaw. This intuitive process, referred to as “sketching with a bandsaw” allows the artist to generate forms rapidly, working through new and exciting ideas without preliminary design development. This approach to woodworking is an attempt to capture the fast paced, crude mark-making that is commonly found in contemporary urban art. The resulting works in “METROS” are distorted compositions of abstracted architectural forms, exploring the limitless possibilities of the urban landscape and our human relationship to it. McNabb is represented by the Robert Fontaine Gallery.
