Quiet Landscape, 1994

Bruce West
(American, born 1939)

Location: Lincoln High School, Tacoma

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Sculptor Bruce West created Quiet Landscape using a self-invented machine that allows him to bend, shape and form sheets of stainless steel. He then heats the sculpture to a very high temperature to create different colors. Forms found in the natural world and the artist’s garden inspired the curves and valleys of this composition.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Tacoma School District.
