April: Kip Pasta
• • ••
Kip Pasta is a Chicago native whose abstract wood sculptures have been recognized by the Chicago Artist' Coalition. "Construction sculpture" is a modern departure from the classic connotations of art sculpture. The simple, linear lines of each piece translate into an intricacy that reflects and complements a space, while compelling the viewer to become a subjective observer. The compact complexity of each sculpture belies the artist’s work method: “I do not do sketches of my work prior to constructing. If I did, I believe that I would be limited to a blueprint.” Each piece is thoughtfully crafted by the artist as an elicitation of its surroundings. The result is an organic, energetic art piece with a sophistication evocative of nature.
