The Guide is a figurative work fabricated entirely from 8″ I-beams. The figure stands in the classical contrapposto pose and holds an acrylic staff that illuminates his path through dark times.

As a sculptor, Phil Proctor strives to design and execute artworks that intrigue and inspire a viewer about their place in an environment of space. His work exhibits a relationship between our existence as a human species and the universe in which we exist. He examines the tools and concepts that we have created in order to understand our world and he explores ideas that dwell on the boundaries of region and logic. He believes these explorations are the fertile grounds from which true discoveries are born.
