Artist Statement: Joe Rock Edwards


Sensuality and the feminine role in society juxtaposed with the natural and unnatural world build monuments to beauty. Through the ebb and flow of the brain's hemispheres, I interpret the female form using harmonious balance of shape. Each work aims to inspire visual poetry through process of logical development. I want to create a common bond between the art piece and observer. Human anatomy is the most perfect of machines. Study of importance changes with every new sculpture. Each form finds a new boundary of beauty. I sculpt the female using expressive techniques and then refine the parts of the piece that seem most important. The necessity of abstraction is not to define a precise meaning but let the viewer simply interpret the art for themselves.
