Eric Knoche - Alexander NC
My work is an exploration of the underlying cadences and postulates of my own life and the layers of culture that surround me. The objects I create are distillations of fundamental movements of energy into static three dimensional forms. When I make my work, I often feel as though I am excavating my own subconscious. I think of my work as one installation stretching through time as space, each piece adding meaning to the others. I have been strongly influenced by languages I don't understand and tools I don't know how to use, male and female figures, machine parts, shelters, math equations, micro-facial movements, the argentine tango, alphabets, the spine and other bones, the distortional nature of memory, the limits of ocular perception, plants, running water, and songbirds.
