Shawn Farrell, Artist
When you are accustomed to seeing something in the same way day after day you tend to forget the beauty that is held within it. With my work I take the observer to a place they have been before but have not seen in such a way. This allows the viewer to experience a new perspective on his or her own world and their place in it. It allows them to find the inherent beauty in all things. Be it the beauty of a flower or the simplicity of form.My inspiration and ideas develop from shapes and forms and their interaction with light. I look at the way the positive and negative parts of the object work with each other. I enjoy playing with form and function in my sculpture. What was it? What could it be turned into to bring out the personality of the object(s)? I enjoy bringing out the beauty of everyday things.
