Orville's art work has a hint of abstract, and a strong sense of the primitive. This Arlington, Nebraska native is a farmer by profession, and an artist by choice. He creates his wonderful artwork between sowing and harvesting crops. Metal seems to be a natural medium for this farmer turned artist.
Metal sculpture is the medium of the 20th century. The oxyacetylene and arc welding processes have made this possible, because of their relative ease and speed in joining two metals. His is a rich, earth kind of scuplture. Each piece has a special vitality and strength. There is a masculinity without being over powering, combined with a touch of the whimsical.
