Admire the Creative Complexity of Ken Bortolazzo's //Moving On

Ken Bortolazzo


If you’re visiting Santa Barbara have a passion for abstract art, Sullivan Goss American Gallery has an exhibition that is sure to excite. The exhibition, //Moving On, displays the complex craftsmanship of Ken Bortolazzo’s kinetic sculptures made entirely of stainless steel. The sculptures in Bortolazzo’s newest collection are not designed to simply be looked at, but more so to be watched. While the sculptures may appear to have no distinct order to them, they were carefully crafted to display grace of movement and a perfect balance between the sturdiness of objects and frailty of nature. Bortolazzo also experiments with colored lighting effects and wall-mounted works of art in this exhibition.


A Santa Barbara native, Bortolazzo has always been passionate about incorporating the complexity of puzzles into his artwork. He has received numerous awards, released multiple publications, and worked side-by-side with well known artists Julio Agostini, Kenneth Noland, and George Rickey throughout his extraordinary art career.


Ken Bortolazzo is a respected metal sculptor not only in America, but also around the world. While his sculptures are most frequently presented on the West Coast of the United States, Bortolazzo’s work can also be found in public collections, galleries, and museums throughout Japan, England and New Zealand.


Sullivan Goss has proudly supported the work of American artists for over 25 years. Throughout this time, their exhibitions have included over 3,000 sculptures, paintings, drawings, watercolors, and prints. The American Gallery is located in Santa Barbara’s Historic Arts District, just walking distance from the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the Santa Barbara Center for the Performing Arts, and the home of the Santa Barbara Symphony at the Arlington Theater.
