For nearly three decades, John Bisbee has welded and forged 12-inch spikes under the mantra, "Only nails, always different." He has set up this problem for himself, it’s rather simple, yet incredibly laborious, make something new every day with just this one material.
“I want to see how far the nail can travel,” says Bisbee. Developing a beautiful and sophisticated language with the nail, he says of his work, "There is no answer. You don't need art history. You get it or you don't."
