Terry Maker
In my art-making process, I utilize a variety of commonplace, discarded, domestic objects combined with traditional art making materials to compose sculptural forms that are subsequently cast, cut, drilled and scraped to reveal the "guts" or the polished veneer of the matter.

Through this process, I curate selected forms that become-or represent-specific, symbolic codes or grammar that speak to the physical and spiritual concerns of the human condition - specifically, the force of attraction to temporal concerns in this ephemeral, transitory world in which we live.

"Holy Fool" addresses desire and human initiative in light of the [obvious] awareness of our ultimate end - a seemingly contrary companion on life's journey. With this body of work, I investigate the conundrum of this reality with various sculptures that symbolize the gravity, pathos and, sometimes, comedic state of the human situation and the quest for an exit plan or possibility of redemption.
