Lausanne, Switzerland-based multimedia artist Gavin Worth bends steel wire into expressive forms and figures that have the appearance of 2D line drawings magically lifted from the page and suspended in midair. Worth’s creates wire illustrations that depict the human form and capture the beauty of fleeting moments of everyday life and tender human interactions.

"By bending black wire into something of freestanding line drawings, I create sculptures that engage the viewer by involving them in their subtle changes. When the light in the room shifts, so does the mood of the piece. A breeze might softly move an arm. My wire sculptures tell stories of simple human moments: a woman adjusting her hair, a face gazing from behind tightly wrapped arms, a mother gently cradling her baby. The honest, unguarded moments are the ones that I find to be the most beautiful."
