Equilibrium : The Balance Between Order and Chaos


 

 

These terra cotta reliefs are the direct outcome — the residue and evidence — of the processes that the clay has been subjected to. They also are, in a sense, three-dimensional drawings. My intention is that the viewer first sees each object’s parameter, and then follows the “drawing” of the gestural folds, edges, crevices, ravines, and gouges that make up the curving contours of each work. The surface coloring, caused by firing the clay at extreme high temperature oxygen-reduction, almost appears to be airbrushed. It is the result of the clay body’s inherent qualities that have been drawn to the surface from within. Although they may appear rough, raw and harsh, the sculptures emit a sense of serenity. They are closer to the shapes and textures of the natural landscape than they are to any western historical works of art.
