Dave Regier, whose art background includes photography and classical violin, has found a way to combine art and music. Using standard structural shapes in stainless steel, he elicits images and concepts unique to the individual viewer’s personal viewpoint.
Stainless steel, an alloy of metals including chromium and nickel, provides an elegant medium that invites touch as well as the visual survey so often associated with traditional metal sculpture. Each sculptural element is carefully fabricated and flawlessly assembled to maintain a sense of precise unity within each piece. Dave combines crisp contemporary design and Old World craftsmanship creating signature pieces unique to the genre.
Dave grew up with steel sculpture, and was apprenticed with his father, Arlie Regier, a master sculptor, who studied under the highly respected sculptor Richard Stankiewicz. Collaborating, Dave and Arlie design and build commissioned pieces for both patrons and corporations. Currently, Dave’s individual work can be found in galleries located in Charleston, SC, San Francisco, Santa Fe, and Kansas City.
Dave embraces the very technology portrayed in many of his pieces by incorporating computer-assisted design to transform a creative concept into a larger scale sculpture. Pieces range in size and weight from 15 inches to 9 feet and 40 pounds to 550 pounds. Each piece, with its attention to detail, balance, perceived movement and energy invites the patron to experience the elegance of stainless steel in an unexpected celebration of form and personal interpretation.
