Minimalism & art sculpture, a brief post on creative development as an artist & future sculptor.
My recent architecturally inspired lighting using Perspex® has given my work another dimension. I have enjoyed working and making in the workshop, nothing beats working with your hands! In 2017 I will continue this development work. It is my intention to introduce bright colours to my bold sculptural forms next. I continue to be fascinated by lines, bold geometric forms and the way light interacts with them.
When designing I am often torn between form and function, perhaps its my product design background. But I often feel my products must perform some kind of function. In 2017 I have decided to produce some pure sculptures. These objects apart from expressing my work with lines and minimalism will be just be sculptures! Less is always more for me so minimalism suits the way i think and the way I want to express myself as an artist.
Art & Sculpture Inspiration
I have many favorite artists, Joel Shapiro, Frank Stella, Jim Lambie & Sol Lewitt to name a few.
A movement in sculpture and painting which arose in the 1950s, characterized by the use of simple, massive forms. “Everything is still, repeated & obvious. The accumulation of facts collapses perception. The indicated sum of these simple series is irreducible complexity. And impenetrable chaos. they astound. ” Mel Bochner
