GEORGE WHITNEY

I am drawn to abstract, geometric sculpture, the volume of it, the form, the textures. Shape is all around us, surrounding every aspect of our lives. Working with the shapes that I find, I adapt them, combining elements of multiple forms and unrelated textures, to arrive at a final destination. By combining the curving lines of nature, together with the angular lines of geometry and then interpreting them in glass I attempt to create a sculpture that results in a gentle merging of the entities; one working with the other. Line and mass, the interplay of angles and planes, textures and polish all working together, to create effects of light and shadow, and a sense of structural strength and unity.
