Opening Reception: May 6 @ 6:30pm
"My goal as a sculptor is to produce the kind of work that does not need an artist statement to be enjoyed and appreciated.
Although I bring a sense of Christian vocation to my role, I do not think that art is a very effective preaching medium and so my work is made to be open to many interpretations. Although the work starts at a specific point in my experience, it is intended as an open attempt at communication with the observer.
About the most specific thing I wish to say about my work is that I enjoy the character of my materials and the manual process of shaping them. If nothing else happens in the viewing process, it is my hope that my audience will sense the work as a celebration of those materials."
- Neale Murray
