Discarded objects with curves and diagonals are collected – natural deadfall
and human-made. Bend, cut and assemble - the armature is constructed.
Muscle is applied, similar to a body. Cloth that has been
soaked in paint is placed onto the structure, providing durability, skin and
Resonance from the objects influence application and determine the overall
composition, often described as visceral. The sculpture is organic in form
but contains mostly industrial materials within. This attribute
implies an interconnection between humanity and nature, aiming to reverse
memes associated with function.
The form isn't specific in content, yet tangible enough to provoke a
response from the viewer, whose experiential reaction plays an integral role
in completing the sculpture. Along with the viewer's interpretation,
connotations embedded in the materials are combined with the working process
and a collaborative formulation is conceived.
Thomas Pyrzewski was born in Detroit. He is a sculptor and performance
artist, and the Director of Galleries and Special Programs at Wayne State
Hope to see you at the Opening Reception!
