Lois Teicher artist statement…
I have been a professional sculptor for over thirty years. My journey has led me to search and understand the fundamental structure of the Universe. As I evolved as an artist, I became aware of basic essential concepts, such as the existence of Time/Space continuum. This awareness resulted in my use of space as a material, along with other basic essential ideas, such as duality held in dynamic tension and various aspects of energy. These ideas are interpreted and restated into three dimensional forms. Themes used in my work flow directly from my search to understand and connect to the universal.
A large part of my professional life is to seek and apply to calls for public sculpture commissions when opportunity presents. Simultaneously smaller pieces are fabricated in my studio, enabling me to express ideas that are current. My studio work is generally welded metal that I fabricate. The process of expressing ideas mostly emanates from a solitary inner experience that flows outward and takes the form of visual expression. My intention with both avenues of expression, i.e. public and private sculpture, is to express ideas in shape and form hoping that the viewer would notice, reflect upon, become aware of, and share in the experience.
