Frederick Prescott is widely acknowledged to be one of the most important kinetic steel sculpture artists of our time. He has been instrumental in the development of assemblage, or constructions of various pieces, in sculpture. He is widely recognized for his high level of technical proficiency combined with the whimsy of his subjects. Movement and surprise are key elements of a Prescott sculpture. He surprises the viewer by combining weighty and massive materials with light and whimsical subjects. The technical construction creates balance, while the spatial planes lend movement. Prescott is constantly recreating himself, yet one can find a common thread throughout his work in the combination of a passion for life and a passion for art. He has exhibited his work internationally in over one hundred one man exhibitions and his work is included in the permanent collections of many important museums and corporate collections. Sculptures from his series of massive outdoor animal sculptures have recently been purchased by The Staten Island Hilton Hotel and by entertainer Andy Williams, a well known collector of Modern Art. Other collectors of Prescott’s artwork include Porsche, McDonalds Corporation, Guess Jeans, Michael Jordan, Sandra Day O’Conner, and Steven Spielberg.
