graphic element Scott D. Bigelow
10.5 x 7 x 6

My photography has moved closer and closer to the subject matter over the past few years. I try to find interesting shapes or patterns in mundane objects such as stone or rusted metal, and create an interesting composition, always mindful of color and texture. My final image is often 10 to 20 times its original size, which often leaves the viewer questioning what my subject matter actually is. I have also started to experiment with throwing images out of focus in order to further distort or disguise the actual subject matter.

My sculpture is primarily stone, soapstone, and alabaster. I tend to carve biomorphic shapes. Increasingly, I have been going to the core of the stone, creating open spaces or internal passages that, at first, may be obscured and only realized with closer examination.
