Ted VanCleave has been creating art for more than thirty years while living in San Francisco, Los Angeles & Miami before making Saint Petersburg his home in 2017. VanCleave's new Drape & Amoeba sculpture series are a fusion of fluid and organic shapes bathed in bold colors. The medium is leather as it's never been experienced before. Each piece is a meditation in form and every angle is a different story. The flow, the folds, the peaks and valleys plus bold metallic finishes make them endlessly interesting, adding new energy to any space. VanCleave's new Reflexions Collection of collectible designer mirrors is created by framing custom cut and color mirrors with multiple Amoeba sculptures. The result is a stunning and unique three dimensional frame in a variety of both frame and mirror colors.
Artworks by VanCleave can be found in collections in the USA and internationally and have been acquired by the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation as part of their permanent collection. His work was exhibited at the Dali Museum in 2018. He's also exhibited widely during Art Basel in Miami including Art Miami, Art Miami Context and Aqua Art Miami. His work was exhibited in four major fairs simultaneously via four top international galleries. His interviews on CNN among others have received a worldwide audience.
