Sadlemire Sculpture Unveiled in Boeing S.C. Welcome Center

In honor of Boeing Day in Horry County, South Carolina, and in recognition of Boeing’s 100th anniversary, artists Tommy Davis and Robert Saddlemire presented an original painting and metal sculpture to We Are Boeing SC. Representatives from the Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corporation, South Carolina Department of Commerce, Horry Georgetown Technical College, Horry County Early College High School, Business Education Expectations (BE2), Coastal Carolina University and SC Works Waccamaw attended the event.

 Artist Statement:
To inspire and symbolize the foundation of flight through the representation of the airfoil was my intention in the creation of the Boeing sculpture. The goal is for the future of Boeing here in Horry County and the growth of our young and talented individuals. Many thanks to all those involved for the honor to be apart of the Boeing Welcome Center in South Carolina.

Natures Journey by Artist Robert Sadlemire – Myrtle Beach, SC – Metal – 9’ x 10’ x 5’

Artist Statement – This sculpture entitled “Natures Journey” is a visual symbol reflecting the collective efforts of the individuals working together objectively to save an endangered species. Expressing the desire to insure the survival of this majestic beloved world traveler is my intent.

The mechanical process and freedom of forming ridged metal into a representational image that appears to be in floating in motion; to inspire and evoke thoughts is my objective in this art statement.

As if frozen in time, this sculpture will stand as a tribute and an inspirational symbol of love for all those who have helped in the sea turtles journey and its survival!

As a metal artist and fabricator, form and motion has been an obsession through out my processes over the years. I have had a long time interest and curiosity in inventing my own machines, allowing me to take something as hard and cold as metal and turn it into a soft and fluid almost seemingly impossible work of art.

My mechanical curiosity and desire of manipulating metals from functional to conceptual, has been the common denominator from the very beginning. I have created and invented methods and machines that shape metal into works of art. Over the years my work has evolved from exploring representational imagery, making steel seems as if it is soft and flowing using my signature spiral techniques to the now conceptual geometric motion sculptures.

When I am commissioned for a project, there is an excitement to solve the vision using my mechanical experiences and methods of structural theory. I have had a mechanical freedom in my soul that has grounded my conceptual thoughts, with the discipline of the reality of metal.

The exploration is to unfold my creative process into works of art that can explain known and unknown mysteries of the life’s struggle.

Natures Journey

Robert Sadlemire – Myrtle Beach, SC
Metal – 9’ x 10’ x 5’

My name is Robert Sadlemire and I am a conceptual structuralist, metal artist. With more than 30 years of metal fabricating experience, I specializes in custom built grand staircases, gates, historic restorations, replicas and monumental public sculptures.

I have designed and created such works as the iconic sculptural ship replica at the historic Charles Towne Landing in Charleston, S.C., a recreation of a 40 ft historical cornice for the Lower County Council of Savannah, and an early 1800s cornice replica on top of the Williams- Sonoma Building located on King St in Charleston, S.C. My most recent sculpture is an Earth Sphere Water Sculpture located at the Sumter Technical College in Sumter, S.C. and a 24 ft contemporary monumental sculpture for the Horry Georgetown Technical College in Conway.

My goal as an artist and metal fabricator is to work personally with each client, discovering the aesthetics and goals for the project, ensuring a finished work that fulfills the desired aspirations and delivers a unique product created by artistic integrity, quality construction and craftsmanship.
