Laird Hovland is inspired by the realms of sacred geometry, spirituality, music and science. He expresses this inspiration through bronze and steel mediums. Laird seeks to strike a balance and create elegant interplay between positive and negative, technology and nature, along with a sense of simultaneous order and chaos.
A recent series is based on the relationship between the Fibonacci Sequence and the Golden Ratio. This is observed in such things as sunflowers and pinecones, the arrangement of branches on plant stems and of veins on leaves, the geometry of crystals and the human body.
