Good morning, Kristen. Just wanted to thank you for your review of KSS 10. Art to me sometimes becomes psychologically penetrating into my subconscious with no real direction, reasonably free. Other times there is a thought, a frame of mind to some degree. I lay the canvas down surrounded by paints and other materials and begin the composition. It's like Forest Gump's saying, " it's like a box of chocolates, you never know what your going to get". However, you can not erase what you know. So there seems to be boundaries, either from the canvas, what you can physically do, your mental state, the environment, etc. Perhaps that is why I like sculpture, the image forces you interact around it and actually demands space thru it's own visual breath.

Anyway, thank you again and have a wonderful day.

Curator’s Comment:


Thank you for requesting commentary on this new piece.  This work has a surprising approach! Your drawings take different visual risks than your sculptures, but as I’ve said with the previous/recent two-dimensional work, there is a suspension of visual weight whereas your sculptures deal with plastic space.  KSS10 goes even further in creating a dense web of lines, and yet appears to contain these rhythmic patterns within a singular entity- the circular shapes in the corners are reminiscent of wheels.  The composition also has a more clearly delineated figure-ground relationship, with a shift in value and color between the yellow-ocher ground and darker gray space.  I wonder if you thought about a vehicle (literally or conceptually) as a tranportation machine.  As I’ve become more familiar with your sculptures over time, I imagine the smooth lines and geometric forms with shooting trajectories reference industry or aerospace technology.  In that context, the hand worked lines and grittier brushstrokes in KSS10 reflect more rudimentary mechanics.  But there is a richness in the presence of the artist’s hand, and the lost and found gesture.
