Kirk Seese is a multi-disciplinary artist from the Washington DC area of Maryland. His artistic professions span being a 2D large scale mural artist, set artist for film and television, lead designer for climbing gyms, and now 3D public sculptor exhibiting throughout the nation. The Feather began as a pod of colors and gradually transformed into a feather sculpture using printing techniques that emulate the vibrancy of stained glass. Panels were added and positioned to optimize the view from multiple approach angles. The Feather is at home in the Sculpture Forest. Notice that there are two snags (standing dead trees) located to the rear left and rear right with holes created by woodpecker birds who were looking for insects to eat under the bark.
ABOUT THE SCULPTUREThe Feather, aka Pluma Sculptura, is part of Kirk’s most appreciated and widely exhibited series. There are different versions of unique Feathers publicly exhibited in multiple states across the country. The Feather initially began as a pod of colors and gradually transformed into a feather sculpture using printing techniques that emulate the vibrance of stained glass. Panels were added and positioned to optimize the view from multiple approach angles. The Feather is at home in The Sculpture Forest.

ABOUT THE SCULPTOR
Kirk is experiencing a blast of excitement right now as a middle-aged visual artist in a future “pregnant with possibilities”.
For the majority of his artistic career, he has been a Maryland / Washington DC metro area 2D large scale mural artist, and he still works in that genre. He focused on interior and exterior murals and faux finishing. He also spent two years as a scenic artist/set painter for film and television.
He became Lead Designer for active family entertainment company ClimbZone. His fabrication techniques developed while there, opening his eyes to the possibilities of creating art in 3D. Expanding from his roots in public art, he married the two together.
Kirk’s public sculpture installations are now displayed in many states across the US, including a rather large installation in Sunset Neighborhood Park of Renton (southeast side of Seattle) and even an underwater sculpture for the Underwater Museum of Art in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.
He is currently pushing the boundaries of his techniques and materials by learning 3D CAD programs and incorporating opportunities to experiment with new materials such as concrete, stone, steel, and bronze. He is further expanding his concepts by adding kinetics and digital elements such as augmented reality, projection mapping, and LED technology. He finds it all extremely overwhelming and exciting, loving every minute of it.
