My name is sam klein, and i am an artist living in portland, oregon. i have been taking art classes since i was 7, so combined with my relatively short attention span, i have played around with a lot of different types and ways to do art, and communicate creatively. i have painted small stuff and big stuff. i find it far more interesting to keep on exploring new territory, than to just focus on one thing. this idea is what lead me to start working with screws. i have always been interested in circles more than squares and rectangles. corners are just so... conventional. i think a bunch of circles on a wall is infinitely more visually appealing than some sterile set of boxes all hung at precisely eye level. anyway, from circles i moved to spirals and patterns. i started using screws more and more, and here i am, 8 years later, and still fascinated by what can be accomplished simply using 5 different sizes of screws. square grids, triangle grids, concentric circles, radiating patterns, spirals, and we havent even mentioned painting the screws yet.
