Ken Bortolazzo

BIOGRAPHY

1947-

Ken Bortolazzo’s early passion for complex puzzles is evidenced by the interlocking geometric forms of his work. Devising his own intricate puzzle sculptures, he begins working on a small scale, progressing to large outdoor sculpture. At his studio he grinds the stainless steel, creating a surface that beautifully reflects light. His approach to art has always been hands-on as he has learned from other artists. In his work there is a dichotomy between the simplicity of the line and the complexity of the lines’ interaction.
