Richard Swanson: Sculpture 1994-2000
The diverse nature of my sculptural output during this period was due in part to my penchant for exploring new materials. I utilized the natural tendencies of materials such as burdock (wants to clump) and straw (wants to scatter) but also persuaded them to do the unexpected--insubstantial materials totter skyward, solid metal pieces rock or sway with the slightest
touch or breeze. Other materials are coaxed to balance, top-like, or soar in an arching sequence of repetitive forms reminiscent of time-lapse images.
