ROBERT HAMRIC

"In the early collage series, I used materials in a combination of linen, wire and found objects. Wood and wire frameworks form the shapes. The use of copper, wire, nylon and other materials add contrast, texture and depth to the folds of linen.  Included with these elements are also plastic and metal. Some illumination has also been added through the use of neon and other lights. With the use of steel in sculpture recently, I have enlarged the cross to feel the importance of the shape turned in various directions. It is meant to reflect seasonal colors relating to the direction it is facing. This is a recurring design of color and shapes that I have been working with for many years in painting and drawings. The ability of the viewer to rotate around the sculptures gives a symbolic feel of our changing world. As one views the different angles many more shapes emerge. In Seasons I, the black sides refer to the color of north, relating to the element of water and the winter season.  The green sides are for east, earth and the season of spring. The red side faces south and is the fire element relating to the season of summer. White symbolizes the west, autumn and the element of metal. Yellow is the center. The works are in steel with enamel and are made up of six cubes put together. Various finishes and textures are in use on these pieces."
