About Found Objects
Frank Barada uses scrap metal to allow whimsical sculptural images to emerge through his creative process. He created six unique sculptures featuring figurative imagery to sit atop the tiled pedestals created by another INFLUX artist, Nidal Fakhouri.
“A lot of times, especially when I don’t have any set direction – when I’m just kind of flowing with it, it feels like the piece is already there and I’m just helping it come out.” – Frank Barada
Frank has been a resident artist at the Steel Yard since 2003—welding, casting, and building unique sculptural creations out of metal. His approach is one of playful discovery, giving himself and his materials the freedom necessary to see what emerges.
