Skip  Newton profile picture

Over the years, I have developed an appreciation for the juxtaposition of cast away objects and how they interact in an environment that binds them all together. Stacking and unstacking, welding and cutting, machining and twisting, painting and sandblasting – progressing from clutter and chaos, to something simple and structured. Lacking formal art training, I drawn upon my background as a mechanic, boat builder, inventor, and marine scientist to create pieces incorporating the natural beauty of found objects and common structural materials. Residing in Fallbrook, CA I grow avocados, and when inspiration strikes, I play the role of bricolage sculptor.
