Statement

 

 

Judson King Smith

Artist’s Statement

 

The impetus for my sculpture making is a reverence for entropy, decay, dilapidation, corrosion & rust.

My work has evolved from a fascination with urban ruins, graveyards of technology, industrial archaeology, obsolete machinery, abandoned buildings, ghost towns & shipwrecks. These influences are tempered by my recent years of living in the woods, which have introduced organic elements of the cycle of life & death, natural, human & animal forms.

I approach art making with a desire to provide a visceral experience of the impermanence of technology & the gradual & inevitable breaking down of our synthetic world by natural forces. I am particularly interested in exploring our identity as humans through history & evolution: with the influence of nature, technology, culture & religion.

 

Working with industrial & natural materials I transform what I see into objects & environments of aesthetic & raw expression.
