Metalwork, Other, Sculpture

Mackey, Roy

About the artist
I have been doing steel sculpture for the last thirty two years. Presently I not only live in but also Manage the ARC Building with my large parrot. She is also an artist in her own sense. She does a lot of wood carving and also likes to draw blood. When it comes to my steel sculpture I work from inspiration and thus spend most of my time sitting around killing time and waiting for more inspiration. Partly because I am lazy and easily distracted. Most of the work I have done is constructed out of thin sheet steel. Thus even my larger works are quite light. For this years crawl I am going to be showing a lot more of my work than usual. A lot of it will be my earlier work from twenty or thirty years ago. I am also a self proclaimed writer who has written and self published two books to date with one more ready for print and another one waiting for more inspiration. I will be selling copies of them at the Crawl again this year. A Fly in the Microwave... fun on the farm when no one's around. Volume 1 and 2. A collection of short stories about growing up on a small farm. If you are bored and like the unusual you may find my website to be worth the trip. The bird and I will be looking forward to meeting you at this years Eastside Culture Crawl !! Stop in and say hi!!!
