About the Artist

Larry Akers has been doing constructed sculpture in Austin since 2011. Raised in Pampa, Texas, he escaped to Austin by 1973 and over the next 21 years acquired a stack of mathematics and computer science degrees at UT. On the way to becoming an artist, he taught mathematics in Dripping Springs and spent 40 years as an applied computing research scientist, acquiring an affinity for pattern that infuses almost all his artwork. He has been a prominent parks, neighborhoods, and environmental advocate ever since the Town Lake Park initiative of the 1980's and was a central figure in the creation of the park adjacent to the Palmer Event Center. He loves his wife of 29 years and his son of almost that age, most of the people he knows, dogs, music, water, and fruit.The Thinkery features a permanent installation of his work. Exhibits include the Biennial at the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art in Dallas, CamibaArt on 6th, the People's Gallery at City Hall, Dougherty Arts Center, Texas Art House, Old Bakery (pending), and numerous Studio Tours.

Artist Statement

Interactively kinetic, fluid imagery is the common theme in my work. I do layered, constructed sculpture, often geometric in nature, using patterned, reflective, refractive, illuminated, or transparent colored materials. The moving part in my work in the viewer, who by changing position or focus can vividly animate the image of the artworks. My pieces invite exploration and play, and at their best can explicitly illustrate the relationship between vision and cognition.
