TORY FAIR
Through making sculpture I focus on exploring a liminal state of mind. Fabricating objects that attempt to capture and convey this state of mind is somewhat of a paradox. How does one make the intangibles of experience solid in material and in form? How do you cast a daydream?

My work relies on the fortitude of sculpture to make physical things that are not physical at all. I am in collaboration with materials that I have been engaged with for several years. These materials include a range of resins and rubbers and spans also to embrace the presence of concrete, paper clay and most recently, sage. I welcome confusion between what is recognized literally and what is felt or sensed. My intent is to nudge the viewer into an experience of empathy. On a very basic level, I want sculpture to endorse the ability to communicate with things that are outside of ourselves.
