More About the Artist
"River Origin and Movements #1" by San Antonio artist George Schroeder is an abstract interpretation of the inspiring visual imagery of the river below that become fluid lines of forged steel. Schroeder CNC-cut and then manually heated, twisted, hammered and shaped thousands of
strips of steel as a series of dynamic interpretations of the forms of aquatic plants, moving water along with the dappled and reflecting light
that can be experienced along the San Antonio River. Creating unique works on both the Camden and Newell bridges,
Schroeder’s street-level rail and screen projects have become bookends for the Grotto area and capture the beautiful
complexity of our natural world.
