Grounding Sky and Sculpting with Blue
My recent sculptures have multi-angled surfaces painted in varied tonalities which visually amplify the effects of sunlight acting on the color blue. Grounding Sky is comprised of interlocking timber beams that form a large open 3D grid. The spaces articulated in-between the materials are key to my concept and process of both sculpting and painting with light and color.
I paint with varied tones of a single hue on adjacent planes of the sculpture, the intervening light moving through the form creates ambient color interaction, producing a glowing effect.
In my current focus in sculpture, by dealing with light and color, I am involved in a visual dialogue that transcends the 3D axiom of sculpting.
