“(Artists) fix something–life–which cannot be fixed…For a work of visual art is stationary, it doesn’t grow or move, or if it does, it inevitably changes into something unintended.” (Fairfield Porter on Mondrian and Arp, 1960)
I lean inwards, peeling away the surface to reveal something unintended–something that grows and moves and reacts to the space that it inhabits.
Right angles are disrupted by organic form. Two-by-fours are conduits for soft tissue.
There exists an underlying tenuousness in built forms. I seek to make the tenuous and the unintended physically evident.
