Hives, Lines, and Shadows

by Rickie Wolfe


OCTOBER 1 - 31
Opening Reception: 1ST OF OCTOBER, 2015


My work is rooted in an interest in process and the investigation of structure. After forging circles and curvilinear pieces of metal I weld from my palette of forms. I look for compositional interest, line width, and a certain emotional response. I know the metal skeleton is fully realized when I recognize a balance between buoyancy and weight. After the sculpture is welded it is time to be with the piece. I incorporate enamel pieces I have made from reclaimed copper from the print studio, beautiful papers and ones that i burn patterns into, and wire forms I weave.

For me, the beauty of the shadows is always striking, important, and enjoyable when lighting a show. Taking the step to capture the shadows on paper has been an important shift in my art practice. My IMA solo show has come at this exciting crossroads as I continue to explore the relationship between my mediums.
