Not Simply Looking : Working Towards Stimulating and Simulating a Response through Sculpture

When looking at painting and sculpture we experience two very different realities and modes of art. With painting and the rest of two-dimensional art we are given a window into another world. In this way the painting, photograph, or drawing is the ultimate optical illusion. These media stimulate the audience to perceive that they are looking at more than just a two-dimensional form. This mode of interaction is rarely seen when looking at sculpture. Do to their finite three-dimensional existence sculpture rarely forces the audience to search and look in the way painting and the other two-dimensional media do. The artist stimulates and simulates this response and method of looking in the audience by constructing a collection of nine ceramic pieces working individual, in triads, and as a whole.
