My sculpture investigates the expressive trace of natural phenomena and of human presence. Current inquiries engage physical and symbolic transformations (and as impositions) of structured order on organic forms (architectonic, geological, plant and animal systems). Individual works and thematic groupings seek to draw upon associative ambiguity guided by juxtapositions of material, positioning, gravity and scale. More expansive themes consider the ordered and structured tendencies of human intervention and are explored through material context, visual contrast, contradiction, impotence, folly and other plays on form/image/function trajectories. - Matthew Weber - 2018
