Interview with Sculptor Laura Sturtz, November 2018:
Q: What would you like the viewer to take way from the piece?
A: From certain views, the large tubes forms give the impression of incomplete circles. The tubes and wires extending inward imply a reach to create a closed form. However, there is a visual ambiguity: is this coming together or coming apart and expanding. From another view, the forms are completely open. To this artist’s mind, it’s a release, a freeing of form.
