A major concern in Al LaVergne’s sculptures is to develop a vocabulary of interactive movements between forms and spaces. The subject matter is rarely preplanned, even when figures are involved. LaVergne works in several mediums, but welding fabrication with reconstituted metal gives him the most freedom. The ability to apply metal directly allows LaVergne to develop and capture a personal spirit as he constructs the works of art. The resolution of the compositions is developed during the exploration of spaces as he negotiates with the laws of gravity to achieve balance.
