Steve Benneyworth

A graduate of Hillsboro High School and Rhodes College, Benneyworth was a sculptor’s apprentice in New York before returning home to Nashville, where he remodeled houses and continued to make art. There are strains of architecture and engineering in Benneyworth’s massive outdoor sculptures. Constructed with steel and concrete, the works explore abstractions of math and physics, while taking on forms that often could be described as orthopedic. The charcoal sketch pictured here, “Woven Square,” 2000, is a study for a massive sculpture that stands in a private garden in Nashville.
