“Devin Laurence Field is unique among contemporary large-scale metal sculptors because of the level of articulation he achieves in directly fabricated steel. Predominantly commissioned for public sites, these sculptures are complex yet graceful representations of ideas and concepts developed around a particular place, event or setting. Each sculpture is unique, usually site specific and always poignant in its message. The art of Devin Laurence Field brings together universal and archetypal symbolism, the history of a given site or culture, and natural forms to communicate ideas about the evolution of the complex relationship between people, the built environment and the natural world. While growing up in New Zealand, Devin traveled throughout the South Pacific, Australasia, Europe and the Americas. A fifth generation artist, Devin studied art in New Zealand, England, France, Japan and the United States, earning three degrees in the Arts including a Master of Fine Art in Sculpture.
Honored by his peers with such awards as the Helen Foster Barnett Award from the National Academy of Design in New York, the Evelyn and Peter Haller Award from the Society of Animal Artists, and the global design award for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, Devin Laurence Field has built permanent commissioned sculptures for institutions, cities, state and national governments and exhibited in museums around the world. “
