WELDED STEEL SCULPTURE BY CHRISTINE VENTURA KNOBLAUCH - on view with The New Town Collection: A Gift of Hope March 29 - April 23, 2013 When AXOM Gallery discovered that one of Christine's 'wish' projects was to create one her welded metal hearts for the community of Newtown, Connecticut, we decided we needed to connect Henry with Christine. It didn't take long for Henry to invite Christine Knoblauch to join him in this effort. On view with Henry Avignon's The New Town Collection: A Gift of Hope, will be a welded steel heart sculpture engraved with the names of the 26 victims.
Mask down and welding torch in hand, she is completely in her element. Which happens to be metal, her medium of choice. Sculpting scraps of steel, stainless steel and other metals, she bends, twists and bonds the material into ﬂuid shapes and functional art.
