This piece is a representation of a Floral form not uncommon, yet not limited to the natural world. Its flowing lines, reaching for the sky should inspire thoughts of growth and rebirth. The whimsical piece will be painted lightly with bright colors that will fade into a rust patina over time.
Neil has been in the welding industry since 1995, but his artistic career launched even earlier, when, at eight years old, he began to study classical painting.

After one week of painting classes sophomore year, Carver switched to sculpture. Soon after, he started working in a welding shop. Finally, he left school in 1997 to work in a series of metal fabrication shops and artists’ studios. Neil has been featured in Art on the Atlanta BeltLine since 2012.
