Profile Type: artist, commissioner
Terry Welker, FAIA is an architect/artist with a formal education in fine art but later moved toward architecture. He is an award winning architect and distinguished public artist. Making mobiles comes from his passion for architecture, poetic space and meaningful places. Terry works to understand and extend the language of mobiles and suspended sculpture by animating form, space and surface with motion. Working with abstractions, without the restraints of literal interpretation, many of Welker's forms come from his memory of a shape rather than a direct adaptation. Most of his forms are inspired by the natural world.
