Kristan Marvell’s abstract, sculptural forms are about motion, gesture, and time. They are often seen as tectonic and geological, but its strengths lie in the contrast between the power of the tectonic and soft figurative. Kristan’s unique hot wire carving method allows for the improvisational removal of material which he refers to as spontaneous carving.
Steve Schmidt’s “Gyres” series reincarnates plastic castoffs of our consumer culture into minimalist sculptural forms which transcend their disposability. The title “Gyre” refers to the whirling vortex of plastic that’s trapped in the currents of the North Pacific, better known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
Ann Weber’s work reads as metaphors for life experiences, such as the balancing acts that define our lives. Her large organic sculptures are created from woven strips of cardboard. Ultimately, Weber’s interests lie in expanding the possibilities of making beauty from common and mundane material.
