Amanda Wojick
The Hawthornes
Recent Sculpture

March 7 - March 30, 2013
Amanda Wojick
Known for her sculpture made from everyday materials, Amanda Wojick’s recent body of work, The Hawthornes, finds her working in steel. The exhibition consists of a series of 12 welded steel sculptures, each painted in a different color. The sculptures are made of hundreds of hand-cut steel blossom silhouettes, welded to prickly angular structures that are human scaled. The sculptures are delicate, light, and open yet also angular, fixed, and structurally sound. Wojick’s materials and processes engage a long history of sculpture’s dynamic relationship to ornament, decoration, and modernist ideals. The sculptures, due to their presence in the room, encourage the viewers’ awareness of the space and substance around them. Wojick uses abstraction as a way to describe states of mind that are otherwise indescribable and rooted in nonverbal or kinesthetic aspects of human experience.
