Both the failure to meet, and the surpassing of expectations are without the intrigue that comes from their circumvention all together. At our most static there exists within, infinite motions of varying degrees. This is beyond the absence of staticity; it is rather the impossibility of it within what lives.
To encounter what lives is to encounter the other and the self simultaneously. There is anxiety here, seductive and repellent, as this work oozes alluring duality. Comparatively, in the more readily present, unmoving sculpture,
there exists a litany of safeties that solidify otherness alone: an inert stillness, a resonating unchanged volume and an irrevocable denial of time.
