That familiar yet amazing carapace, the human body, has been Stephen Hart’s primary source of sculptural inspiration.
I think about sculpture as containers as the body of thought that has gone into their making. Because one work leads into another, each is an expression of the ongoing dialogue, witness to this unfolding life. The appearance of each work represents a gradually attuned conversation between mind, hand and universe. Given the infinite space of the mind and the hands capacity to translate its discoveries, anything is possible. It is infinite possibility that I have grappled with in my solitary life in the studio.
