Phil Gleason

Phil Gleason is the studio manager at the Master Craftsman Studio in Tallahassee and a sculptor. Many of his works revolve around ideas based on Gestalt, meaning “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”. This idea is what drives him to create artistic works based on the phenomena of perception. His art often involves structures or patterns in which the piece as a whole has properties different from those of its parts. He uses these techniques along with the laws of closure, similarity, proximity, symmetry, and continuity to challenge my viewers’ sense of reality.
