About the Artist

Chris McMullen (Seattle) received 2009 GAP Award funding to purchase a TIG welder for taking his work to another level of sophistication and precision that he is aiming to achieve. For the last eight years he has primarily been working in steel creating interactive, mechanical sculpture. Chris has discovered that in order to take his work even farther, the tools he uses to create must progress with time as well, keeping his skills current and sharp. It would allow him to expand the list of materials he can use such as bronze, aluminum, and stainless steel.
