Festival of the Arts
“Regal” by Dean Imel captures the beauty of movement with the majestic colors of violet. However, movement is the main theme in all of Imel’s metalworks. Why movement? Imel’s inspirational moment came unexpectedly while watching tv. The program showed an aerial view of an affluent neighborhood in Beverly Hills. The houses were gorgeous and extravagant, however something stood out even more . The movement from a kinetic sculpture drew Imel’s attention and an observation was formed, “Any thing that moves and captures your eye is a temporary focal point. You can’t resist it.”
A picture’s worth a thousand words but an experience is priceless. See his sculptures in action and experience the circular and spiral movements of each one. Imel’s sculptures will be on display this year at Festival of the Arts 2020.
