Michael Moran: Sculpture

Sculpture by Michael Moran

Weaving, inverting, bookmatching, layering and framing become an act of contemplation in Michael’s art. His distinct bodies of sculpture are tied together through the essential act of questioning our human relationships with the natural world: the damage we’ve done, the history we forget, the beauty we overlook. Through the manipulation and framing of wood, he addresses these losses, and in binding them together readjusts our eyes to perceive the multi-faceted nature of this material: the trees which grow, which once grew. 
"When seen as a whole, Michael’s body of work gathers individual compositions in conversation, each recontextualizing a material, a thought, with a single overarching concern."
