> DESCRIPTION

Artist’s statement:

This sculptural proposition titled Iterate: Cement Weight on Wire #2 articulates a physical representation of the idea of measurement. A primary objective was to grant "tension" physicality and to make the notions of weight, angle, and space palpable. Using raw materials such as steel and concrete lies in the context of my search for clarity, reduction, and objective distance from my art. 

Zaid Yousef is a Southern California-based visual artist. His formal education is ongoing at the University of California, Riverside, where he studies Studio Art and Art History as an undergraduate. His primary disciplines are painting, sculpting, and public installation, but are not limited to medium or form. His practice revolves around philosophical inquiries about the nature of Art. His artwork is provoked through intellectual vigor and extensive experimentation of form.
