Join artist Dustin Gimbel for a discussion on his path to sculpture and his process. He will give us a visual tour of Sculptura Botanica, his 2020 solo show at Sherman Library and Gardens in Corona del Mar, CA. The show featured some 250 sculptures from individual pieces to totemic works that are comprised of dozens of pieces 9’ high and taller. Gimbel will discuss the role of sculpture in the landscape from the understated to the dramatic. He’ll give us ideas about how we might use sculptural objects in our own landscape including pendants, fountains, totems etc.
Dustin Gimbel has worked as horticulturalist for over 20 years, with a B.S. in Horticulture from Cal Poly Pomona. He also spent three formative years working and studying horticulture in the U.K. at Great Dixter House & Gardens and RHS Garden Wisley. He is a self-taught landscape designer and has worked at his landscape design firm Second Nature Garden Design since 2006. In 2016 he fell in love with ceramics at a local open studio and over time his passion for landscape and ceramics combined in his sculptural work. He is a self-taught artist with a relentless drive to create and experiment. His home studio is located in Long Beach, CA.
