Artist: Will Vannerson of Kansas City, MO
Artist statement: I create tubular, biomorphic compositions whose formal underpinnings include roots, rhizomes, bones, entrails, and Gothic architecture. Nutrition Sculpture shows the strength of our internal workings, and, like us, it is the gathering of a single, continuous tube. The exaggerated physicality of my work is intended to draw the viewer in and cause them to take notice of the fascinating physical world they inhabit. I want the forms to resonate within the viewer’s own bodily awareness, encouraging reflection and curiosity.
