Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Hillel O'Leary

Sculpture, at its best, is three-dimensional philosophy. The rigor of one’s creative practice must
be distilled from the convictions of ones principles and ideals. The time and patience taken with the careful crafting of an object or experience should reflect the commitment of the artist to creating something which exists as their own personal and novel interpretation of the world around them. This interpretation must be made in a language that is both easily understood, and inviting of deeper exploration. It is only then that thought and execution are one, and it is only then that a crafted object can become more than a simple amalgamation of parts and principles. It becomes a symbol. It becomes a lens through which we may view ourselves, and the world around us.
