Herb Babcock Composition Yellow
My sculpture history is grounded in metal fabrication. Glass added two unique elements: the radiance of color and light cutting through mass.
Within my current sculpture, I juxtaposition glass, metal and stone; the metal and stone anchor the mechanics of structure while the glass appears to freeze the ephemeral with optics.
A sculptor tries to focus the eye of the viewer: to read depth, form, texture and meaning. Glass, not a traditional sculpture material, is another tool sculptors can use to create art: object art.
The Pillared Series references “precarious balance” or references the apex of dance movement. I intend it to be a metaphor for life: to stand away for a moment and reflect on being alive.
