For There is Always Light

Walter Early

Chant is part of my sparsities series which emphasizes line to describe abstract volumes. Formally, the work draws from the language of fragments: using incomplete forms to allude to a larger whole. Negative space features prominently and the open sculptures frame and accentuate different views of locations in which they are sited. Bright monochrome pigment plays with perceptions of mass, weight, and volume.
