The University of South Carolina Sumter will feature Glenn Saborosch’s Something Old, Something Older: Homegrown Series through April 29, 2016 in the University Gallery.
Mr. Saborosch is a sculptor residing in Neeces, SC. He was introduced to welded steel sculpture in high school, and has used that as his medium ever since. Working with found steel and other upcycled materials such as old tractors or parts of broken down machines, Mr. Saborosch’s work is concerned with line and space, movement and stillness. Mr. Saborosch spends most of his sculpting time getting disjointed pieces to work together in harmony.
“In recent years, I have turned to rejected steel ‘parts’ of discarded machines to shed their function and show their character,” he says. “I force them to interact with other discarded parts, and create inventive questions about their existence. Any fleeting reference to something in the real world is quickly rejected.”
Mr. Saborosch has shown his sculptures all over the world, from Tokyo, Japan to Columbia, South Carolina. His sculptures have won numerous awards, including Best in Show at the Heartland Art Festival in St. Joseph, Missouri and First Place in Sculpture at the South Carolina State Fair.
