JOEL URRUTY

As an artist I strive to create elegant sculptures 
that capture the true essence of the subject matter.
Form, line and surface are used as the visual language.
The figure is abstracted to a minimalist form,
void of any superfluous information.
The primary material, wood, is often masked
by paint to allow the form to take precedence
over the material. Monochromatic colors,
such as, black or white are often used
on the sculptures allowing light and shadow
to play off the subtle shifting facets of
the sculptures. This is what I do.
Why I do it, I don’t really know.
I do know that there is something deep
inside that drives me to make these things.
Things I don’t completely understand myself.
But when a piece is finished and it feels right,
I know I have done what it was I was suppose to do
and move on to the next.
