Bill Vielehr



Using a complicated and layered fabrication process, Bill Vielehr attempts to create a human form relative to large-scale contemporary sculpture and to relate the human to its environment. These “manscapes” are richly textured in cast aluminum or bronze with hand-worked letters, numbers, hieroglyphs, or petroglyphs—pure timeless forms of communication. This process produces irregular surfaces, which reflect the color and light from their surroundings, creating a continuously changing visual pattern. Vielehr’s well-established career spans more than three decades. He lives in Boulder, Colorado.
