As a sculptor, I embrace beauty.
I’m not one of those difficult artists or even one who uses my work to communicate political or social positions. (That’s fine, BTW, but it’s not what I do.) Instead, I want people to be moved by the visual or tactile impact of my work.
That being said, I don’t think things have to look “perfect.” I like imperfections and unexpected eventualities and often embrace them in my work. That makes the apparently nearly inevitable vagaries of 3D printing my own work part of the discovery of making art for me.
Such happy accidents are definitely evident in my latest 3D printed sculpture, Love and Marriage ….
