Bio

A native of Massachusetts and currently living in Boston’s splendid suburb Somerville, Bevan Weissman exists in duality as an artist and engineer. Trained in both disciplines, his work straddles the line between the two and is typically thematically focused on the merging of art and science, the origins of the creative process, the nature and definition of art, and the building/strengthening of human relationships and interconnectivity. He draws inspiration from the wonder of natural forces and phenomena, the relation of our bodies to ourselves and our environments, and the meaning of social connection and intimate bonds.

Bevan’s areas of expertise include large scale installation, public art, and mixed-media sculpture; his material choices range from metal, cement, and glass to plastics, ferrofluid, and fire — whatever the piece needs in order to come alive.

Artist Statement

The rhythms of the natural world are fascinating. An expanding universe overcome by its own gravity would oscillate, pulsing between destruction and creation – eternally thrumming, unsure of just how it got there in the first place.

Life thrives on interface: the boundaries between being and becoming, between death and dying as fleeting as ripples on the water, as haphazard as an eddied swirl of air. On updrafts and undertows live The Potential, in tides and tempests the critical fluctuations. Vibrating strings, percussive impact, surface tension pulling and sculpting into suggestive symphony. Everywhere entropy is bucked, and everywhere riders are thrown. In between the time when environment and organism become each other, there is only the power of transformation, of converting matter to pattern.

When an object is defined by its origin, that is where it must return.
