Configuration: an arrangement of elements in a particular form, figure, or combination. The geometric, organic, and random formations inspired by nature and how they came to be is the story Frank Morbillo pursues in the creation of his sculptures. The mathematical unfurling of a flower blossom, a canyon carved by the hydraulic forces of a river, or a sudden volcanic eruption are all stories of natural creations.

Similarly, the configuration of a sculpture, its arrangement of elements, provides the rhythm and flow of its story. Over the years Morbillo has used steel, stainless steel, bronze, cast glass and, most recently, recycled cast plastic to tell these stories. Fabricated and cast metals have remained the most consistent thread in his work, the ebbs and flows of the stories expressed through the combination of contrasting materials within each sculptural composition.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through December 30.
