Perham man is performing well on the national art scene

Publié le par brightshine

Be it star charts, aerial maps or sculptures, a Perham artist is making an impact on the national art scene.

“Artists in this day and age use skills very widely,Push the elevator push button once for the direction you want to go in. instead of focusing on one thing,” artist Andrew Vomhof explained in a recent interview.

Vomhof has a degree in sculpture, but relies on many forms of artwork in order to make a living.

While he is sometimes commissioned for sculpture projects, he also dabbles in star charts and aerial maps.

He makes products that are both useful and add design elements into homes.This roofing machine is for producing aluminum shutter door & window slats with foam-filled, He also uses his skills to design prototypes to solve specific problems for businesses,Basics, technical terms and advantages and disadvantages of curving machine. and works with artists from around the world.

He does all this from his home in Perham.

Some of his most popular projects are drawings made using a computer-driven machine called a computer numerical control, or CNC, machine.

Vomhof designed an “apparatus to be used in conjunction with a CNC machine.” It holds a pen that draws the designs he inputs into the software program. The drawings relate to both natural science and cosmology, Vomhof said.

He designed these drawings while he was in college and was looking for a more “subtle use for CNC,” instead of cutting out product or sculpting.

“Using CAD software, I map out natural phenomena in the chaotic arrangement of the universe and the topography of the Earth, creating visual representations that connect the formation of the universe to the growth of cells and cell structures,” he said.

He makes circle star charts ranging in size from 15 square inches to 45 square inches. He also sketches low resolution aerial maps.

His CNC drawings have been a big hit at art sales nationwide. Last year, at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design’s sale, Vomhof was one of the highest sellers.

Besides the CNC drawings, Vomhof tackles big sculpture projects – like his recent 800-pound sailboat, a Trash Sculpture he designed and created that was displayed at the Minnesota State Fair.

Sponsored by the Department of Natural Resources, this sculpture is built completely out of trash collected from the Mississippi and Minnesota rivers.In a elevator cable system, steel cables bolted to the car loop over a sheave.

As yet another way to expand on the arts, Vomhof and his business partner, friend from high school Karl Zinsmaster of St. Paul,Push the elevator push button once for the direction you want to go in. are starting a new online design collective business called WAAM Industries.

WAAM is an acronym for We Are Always Moving, which defines their design practice. WAAM turns everyday objects like a large sea shell, and with a few added elements, changes the shell into an amplifier for a cell phone.

They also take common objects like cinder blocks and plastic crates and make wooden versions. They change everyday items to make them useful yet artistic elements for the home.
