INTO THE 3RD DIMENSION
For a while I have been playing around with the concept of one line drawings; over time they've become increasingly complex. Along with improving line work and practice, I have been trying to show emotion and movement through still drawings. There are many factors that go into showing feeling and gesture in a drawing/painting such as speed, texture, body
language, facial expression, color, etc... I want my bodies of work to more than something nice to look at but an experience. A way I have been able to to make my work feel more like an experience has been through light but I've never attempted sculpture. Creating this and continuing to experiment with lights and wires makes me feel like the curator of my own dreams; I am making something allows people to peer into some kind of fantasy. Sometimes the shadows and illusion the wire creates is even a little nightmarish and creepy but it still feels like something unreal. I think there's something special about art in the third dimension, it takes up space and makes an idea that could've been a flat image an idea that's now tangible. These experiments are enabling me to bring imagination into the physical and I can't wait to see where it takes me!!
