Acrylic, enamel on thermoplastic and panel

This series of wall sculptures was begun in 2020 by injecting color into the grayscale “Drawings in Three Dimensions.” Central to both of these series is a sketchbook whose entries are approached like visual puzzles. An experiment in pareidolia, the sketches begin with a few abstract black marks on a white page and are “solved” by the application of arbitrary rules. The finished compositions invite interpretation by the viewer like seeing shapes in clouds. These two-dimensional drawings are brought up to the third dimension by breaking them apart and reconstructing them as objects. I recreate lines and forms with hand-shaped and painted pieces of thermoplastic mounted on panels. When viewed frontally, the sculptures often appear as little more than lines on a page. However, they reveal their dimensionality when viewed from other angles, challenging the notion that the truth of anything can be fully known from a fixed perspective.
