Jeremy and David Bullis Statement
Jeremy Bullis after David Bullis is a collaboration that began almost 50 years ago between father and son. Jeremy, always curious about what his father was making, would stand by his side asking, “Can I do it?” Fortunately, David was eager to pass on his knowledge as a sculptor, painter, woodworker, and mechanic. He took the time to teach Jeremy the skills and patience needed for making what he was creating.
From the late 1960s until his death in 2011 David created mobiles as a way to study movement, quietly meditating on each piece, seeing each shape from all sides, watching it interact with the others, watching a new image form in shadow and then slowly disappear, never to be repeated in exactly the same way again. Jeremy is honored to carry on the tradition, replicating David’s works and creating some of his own. “Squawk”, an original work by Jeremy, drawing from the things that inspired David and trying to use the language that was originally created, while adding just a little bit of “new” to the conversation.
