Bat Out Of Hell
Feather In The Cap
“Every time I step into the studio to weld I am excited at the prospect of making a new sculpture; I look forward to the process. The challenge of taking an industrial product, cutting and fabricating shapes, then welding them together to create a strong, three-dimensional design brings joy to my soul. There is nothing more invigorating than playing with steel.”
B.A. attended two Westchester County colleges, receiving an Associate of Arts degree at Briarcliff College and a Bachelor of Arts degree with Honors in Studio Art with an emphasis in sculpture at Marymount College. B.A. studied welding techniques at Silvermine Art Center, New Canaan with David Boyajian and followed him to his studio at The Sculpture Barn in New Fairfield, Connecticut.
B.A. D’Alessandro has created sculptures in a variety of materials, but has been concentrating on steel for the last twenty years. Steel lends itself well to straight lines, angles and curves; the influence of geometric shapes is apparent in her sculptures. Taking “pre-formed” stock pieces of steel, the artist arranges and organizes them to create strong, balanced structures. Painting them black gives each its own elegance. Adding color in the past few years to selected pieces has given them a new boldness.
