Dominique Labauvie is a French-born internationally known sculptor who currently lives in Tampa with his wife, Erika Greenberg Schneider. Labauvie works primarily in forged steel and creates large-scale sculptures, many of which are public art pieces located in Paris, Dijon, Draveil, and Levry-Gargan, France, and can also be seen at the Vandenberg Airport in Tampa.

The artist says of his work: “A line of steel is for me a line that is built in segments. The segments interpret a handwriting, the movements of the arm and the hand. It is a line that is strengthened through its interruptions, with each interruption creating intervals and moments of silence. This segmentation leads us to repetition, to rhythm, to music, to a sequence where one passes from the eye to the ear. My recent works are all readings line by line of the construction of a time of vision which joins that of listening.”
