PETE JIMENEZ transforms a hard intractable material like iron into sculptural statements of wit and whimsy, mirth and merriment. Through the dynamics of imaginative collage-configuration, disparate pieces of raw material, divorced from their original context, find themselves in a new reality. This is sculptural alchemy that is as formal as it is playful, wrought in the wonder of creation.

JIMENEZ demonstrates his versatility by summoning totally unforeseen and unexpected results. The sculptor judiciously mediates between the disfunction of three-dimensional pieces and their need to find meaning in their sudden, new arrangement.
