Solar Wind is a kinetic sculpture that reflects the dynamic changes of nature through the passing of time.
Phil Proctor enjoys working with “solid” materials like metal and stone and uses them in a manner that accommodates the natural tendencies of those materials. He utilizes the colors and textures that occur as a result of natural oxidation and patination. This technique makes his outdoor sculpture virtually maintenance free while simultaneously exhibiting qualities of earthliness and wholeness. For many years Proctor has been executing sculpture that embodies the concepts of energy and physical space. Recently, however, Proctor has taken that static concept to a new kinetic plane by integrating moving elements that emphasize the idea of energy.
Phil Proctor is an artist who has been living and working in southeast Atlanta since 2003. Originally from south Mississippi, he holds a BFA from the University of Southern Mississippi and an MFA from East Carolina University. Proctor has permanent sculpture installations throughout the southeast as well as in other countries across Western Europe.
