About Lyman Whitaker

For over 50 years, Lyman has mastered the art of sculpture across various materials and forms. Wind sculptures have been his primary focus for over three decades now, and these pieces are well-respected for their quality craftsmanship, superior mechanical integrity, and artistic innovation.

The receptivity to his work has allowed Lyman to create a wonderful studio where he works with wife Stacy and his brother, John Whitaker. Together they have created a productive network. Lyman graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture from the University of Utah. He studied under Avard Fairbanks and Angelo Carvaglia, learning classical sculpture techniques as well as contemporary design. Currently, Lyman resides with Stacy and their youngest of two children in Southwest Utah.

With an organic and mystical theme woven throughout each piece, Lyman’s artwork is also infused with his current philosophy toward the sustainability of our culture’s present systems. Lyman’s deepest hope is that his artwork can symbolize a move toward better solutions in our relationship with the environment.

“I care deeply about our ecosystem and the world’s societal impact on it. As an artist, I can express my concern for the survival of our planet through a creative medium. The Wind Sculptures, my current work, offer a comforting release from our fast-paced lives with their calm serenity and playfulness. By organically placing the sculptures in settings dependent on natural elements for movement, the sculptures rise out of the ground to symbolize creative energy, and the kinetic elements, new opportunities. I hope that my sculptures will generate a sense of interest and delight shared and enjoyed by a broad array of people.”

Copper Wind Sculpture

With the deliberate use of color and luster in metal, Lyman Whitaker’s wind sculptures evoke the feeling of the desert whether you’re in the heat of Arizona or the snows of Alaska. The combination of the copper and blue hues help you mentally travel to the sun and sand of the Old West, but the spinning nature of the work from this artist combined with the natural elements that help it move, like the wind, keep you tethered in the present day. It’s all the best of modern art combined with the infinity of work that has stood the test of time.
