I think of the current pieces as if I were drawing with material, placing and rearranging. Adjusting the lights to reveal a shift in shadow and reflection. The title that comes to mind is wall sculptures. What is painting? What is sculpture? There lies an interest in pushing the idea of both. I feel as though these inquisitive insights to space and architecture drive me to establish a composition on a 2-dimentional level as well as create an existence for material on a sculptural level.
How does the subtlety of one thing amplify another? The shifting occurrence of light allows for the reflective and translucent qualities of the material to take on multiple iterations of a particular mark. Does the material consume light or reflect it back? Does a thread line bare more weight than that of a paint line?
I had to share these amazing pieces and realized projects by Luc Deleu. He founded T.O.P. office which is a studio that operates to push our perceptions and experiences of what architecture and urban design are. I find the placement of these large structural objects within our built environment to be a redefined physical, mental and spatial experience. Our awareness of objects, as having a particular function and/or place of context is sculpturally and physically challenged in Luc Deleu's work.
