In my Shadow Sculpture series, I’m exploring taking the linear aspect of drawing into 3 dimensions. I’m playing with creating visual confusion between the shadows and the actual sculpture. As a sculptor, my primary concern is with form in three dimensions. In sculpture, the artwork changes as the viewer moves. Relationships between forms shift. Creating in 3D requires the artist to be in several places at once. The accidental or planned way the light falls on my Shadow Sculpture series creates a changed piece each time it is exhibited.
