The Lines Of A Woman

Everything in life can be distilled down to its critical lines. From the simplest notion of using lines to explore pictorial space, to the more conceptual trajectory of lineage. The line is a powerful subject. 

This body of work is my exploration of the human form using simple lines to express the ephemeral side of the figure. Drawing from models, I adumbrated the figure in two fashions; one using a stick and ink and the other by using ink and adding color nuances. 

After drawing the basic form I take these simple images back into the third dimension, thus allowing me to further the lineage of thought from its original conception. The challenge is to create sculptures that exist in space, not static objects within space. As viewers move around the sculptures the lines undulate and create life and breadth to their experience. The metal capturing its surrounding, illuminating light, life and color. 

Metal has become the main tool to express my visual vocabulary. Metal is very seductive for a multitude of reasons. Its pure structural strength, its fragility to bend, its ability to capture time in its inherent chemistry, its reflective nature and its ease of joining via the lucid quality of a weld. A weld being a line in itself. One which starts off as a liquid molten substance that morphs into a solid form. 

The Lines of a Woman is about the figure and metaphorically about myself. How the trajectory of my life line has pushed me to constantly challenge the work, to find my unique voice.
