Dale Enochs- Artists Statement
"Ishi Kawa Venus"
The primary material that I use is indigenous to the area in which I live. That material, limestone, speaks of time, substance, strength and the land from which it comes. These associations are an integral part of the work that I make.
Elements such as scale, texture, form and mass, among others, are formal considerations in the process of making art. Each of these also has their associations.
The manipulation of a material in an ordered manner has the potential to allude to elusive ideas. The choices that I make in this process have a multilayered voice. Through this I hope to speak to the heart of things.
The sculpture titled "Ishi Kawa Venus" is a response to my travels in Japan.
