Jack Sewell

“I believe that the power of an image is in the curves. There is very little use for straight lines or flat planes in my work. For me, the only real representation of a line from point A to point B is a curved line. Curves are where the power of the image lies. Curves are the way nature moves. Curves are where the mathematics gets complex, and math still only approximates the lines that nature produces. My goal in capturing an image is to get the relationships between all of the curving lines and curved planes into alignment.”


Sewell is very involved in the local art community, having served on the Board of Directors of the Redwood Art Association for about 20 years, including several years as president of the board. His work has been shown throughout California in galleries, art exhibits and juried shows. Sewell’s many commissions include a wide spectrum of the arts including theater sets, backdrops for a ballet company, sculpture restoration work, architectural restoration, vintage car replicas, and designing and building exhibition spaces and large site specific pieces. In 2011 he was commissioned by the City of Eureka to design and build a permanent water feature sculpture for what is now the Madekat Plaza on the waterfront, and it was installed in 2012.
