It would be hard not to be enchanted by the steel wire art of Gavin Worth, an artist born in Zimbabwe, Africa, raised in Las Cruces, New Mexico, and based in Lausanne, Switzerland. Delicate and airy, the sculptures could easily be mistaken for sketches. Although stunningly detailed and realistic, there is a simplicity to the lines that makes the steel wire art appear two dimensional.

From the graceful forms of the female body to the emotional expressions of thirsty men and even the careful gestures of the hands, the steel wire art is full of feeling. Focusing on the small things in life, the artist writes, "The honest, unguarded moments are the ones that I find to be the most beautiful."
