Propositum III

Drew Goerlitz

Medium: steel and paper

Through my sculpture I explore the synthesis of line, negative shape, mass, and stability. My sculpture remains simple, although there is a complexity, not in its appearance but contained within the struggle of weight and balance. This combination evokes a feeling of tension and suggests utility. The function of these sculptures is social, political, and most of all personal. It can be one or all of these things. Its elements, paper and steel, force upon us the idea of our society and the roles that industry and communication take in our lives.
