Artist Statement

Fascinated by the imperfections in written or spoken communication, I create work inspired by language. My sculptural works use words to explore visual structure as a replacement for verbal dialogue. Creating a conversation between intuition and information, these objects are lyrical sequences, which express that which I am intensely aware of, but cannot put into words. The abstracted and ambiguous sculptures use both presence and absence of language to articulate the experience of word combinations. The results are objects that create puzzles, which are not intended to be resolved.

Cate Roman, 2011
