The Gallery at Liebowitz
Artist's Reception & Gallery Talk: Wednesday, October 15th, 5:30pm
Whether driven by formal utility, whimsy, or even "found" aesthetics - - the materials and forms that comprise my three-dimensional compositions, often pass through numerous, sequenced processes.
The works presented in this exhibition include diverse visual and tactile vocabularies of deformation, re-combination, and hybridization. They explore possibilities that bridge two - and three-dimensional expressions, but also embrace digital and analog methods.
Forging, welding, riveting, bolting, drape-forming, freezing, twisting, extruding and many other fabrication methods inform these various objects.
