Black Box Lunch - George Tobolowsky

Black Box Lunch

Several times throughout the year, Blue Star Contemporary Art Center presents Black Box Lunch. These short and intimate lunchtime chats give featured artists direct contact with their audience and art-lovers the chance to peek inside the artist's mind. Delicious box lunches from SIP are available for $8 to members, $10 to non-members. Past Black Box Lunch artists include Philip John Evett, Justin Parr and Ed Saavedra, Ivano Vitali and Joan Hall, and Julia Barbosa Landois.

About the Artist - George Tobolowsky

"As native of Dallas, Texas, I earned my business degree and law degree from Southern Methodist University in the early ‘70s. While at SMU, I also minored in Sculpture studying under Texas artist James Surls, who became my mentor and friend. But upon graduation, I entered the business world, and spent the next several decades garnering a successful business and legal career. I was not producing art myself until about seven years ago when I felt an inspiration and with the encouragement of my mentor Surls; I embarked on my own artistic path. My output over the past seven years has been prodigious: over 300 sculptures. I make abstract metal sculptures from steel and stainless steel "found objects". These found objects however, are not of the everyday sort, but rather bulky industrial metal castoffs that I scour scrap yards and fabrication plants to find. I rarely alter theses metal pieces but instead work to fit the individual scraps together - much like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle - into balanced compositions. My sculptures are one part assemblage and one part recycling, which follows closely with the philosophy of another early artistic influence, Louise Nevelson."
