Orchis adamanteus
Steel
2016


Bio:

I am a fine arts student at Winthrop University from Greenville, South Carolina. I am pursuing a B.F.A. in Art with a concentration in sculpture. After graduation, I hope to pursue a career in stage and prop production. My work is a series of experimentations with various media and processes focusing predominantly on movement within a form.

Artist Statement:

Orchis adamanteus is an exploration of drawing in space continued from my previous work.  This work juxtaposes the delicate nature of curvilinear lines with the imposing and threatening underlying materiality of the steel.  This drawing in space seeks to engage the viewer by simultaneously pulling them in for a closer look while disconcerting them with its defensive demeanor and aggressive protrusions.
