The birth of Golemecha
Garret Kane is a versatile artist who explores various fusions of Mother Nature with the human body. His 3-D sculptures that explore the various seasons of the soul are moving, but the technological elements with some of his other sculptures create towering, animated sculptures that are truly breathtaking.
One of his most famous pieces involves a combination of the Japanese Mecha with the Judaic Golem.
Covering this 7-foot structure with natural elements like tree branches and moss, he creates the figure of a protector who ensures that all will stay safe.

Kane’s Work Features Design and Assembly of Golemecha
Unlike other sculptors who create pieces from a single block of material, Kane uses a lot of 3-D printing and CAD design elements, plastic, welded metal rods, wire mesh, plaster wrap, glue, spray paint, borax, branches, roots, tree kits, LED kits, preserved moss, preserved bonsaI, copper plating, and patina kits.
All this is constructed from scratch.
His work feels more like a one-of-a-kind model that he puts together from his imagination instead of following the traditional processes.
This element of his work makes it more complex as the printing process can put together different words and shapes to weave unique elements into each piece.
Then the natural elements allow the piece to speak of the issues that we face in our world today, such as climate change.
Every piece that Kane creates works to explore how humanity interacts with nature and technology in ever-changing ways.
Then he fuses elements from the traditional Greco-Roman approach of figurism to create something that is exaggerated, as if from a myth, yet with enough truth to make it feel like something that is real.
