One artist sees a scrap pile of steel and considers how to make something from nothing. Another finds creative inspiration through the observation of windmills and watermills. And a third creates works of art focused in part on the juxtaposition of the human form and technology. All of these sculptors have their works on display at Madron Gallery’s current “(R)evolution” exhibition, which for the first time in Madron’s history is a sculpture-only show.
A common theme among the three featured sculptors is the projection of nature through man-made objects, including industrial materials like steel. Terrence Karpowicz, Eric W. Stephenson and Dusty Folwarczny, all of whom are based in Chicago, build sculptures that demand a view from every angle in works that evolve and communicate based on different lighting and perspectives. Their works carry
weight, light and movement in multiple dimensions which change and develop with the motion of the viewer.
