Pulse by Fitzhugh Karol consists of five totemic, undulating forms carved with chainsaw and handtools. The artist intends his pieces to be engaged with, touched, and walked through and around. He uses scale, texture, and repeating forms to connect visitors to the works. Karol uses tar to achieve the deep black surface. In addition to large sculpture, Karol also crafts jewelry with a number of iconic forms reoccurring across the different media.
