Sculptor & Painter
Welded Steel & Modular
Artist Statement: "Welding together basic industrial scrap pieces, I build out of steel large and small-scale colonies of microbial, mineral, vegetal, galactic and fractal organisms. With a minimum personal impact, I let the shape emerge, repeat, and assemble, until it gives out a feeling of self-reliance and surprises me." --Isabelle Pelissier

Artist Statement: "For years I have focused on the concept of the 'temple,' my own vision of an architectural locus or passage for the human spirit. Not unlike the pyramids of Egypt, I envision the temple as a machine that transports the viewer metaphorically or metaphysically to realms of consciousness beyond that of the everyday. I present the temple itself or often objects 'removed' from within the imagined interior. Objects include masks, shields, totems, bowls, blankets and ceremonial instruments that are part energy collectors and part sacred spectacles. With that said, artistically speaking, the work focuses on my interest in conceptual art as worked though more traditional artistic media including ritualized craft. I find I am drawn to wiring objects together, actually tying together disparate elements that might have had a most casual relationship, and tapping into the strings, fabric or lines of energy that constitute (whether metaphorically, spiritually or physically) the infinite universes we inhabit. At the same time, each work is a statement of the possibilities, cross cultural ties and grounding that art can generate in an age of ever accelerating human and global activity. Ultimately, my intention is to create works that speak to mysterious primal, ancestral and contemporary human longings." --Paul Oberst
