Thinking about Art….
Art is our initial response to the realization that we are slowly, but surely, fleeting from the planet. We begin to recycle ourselves, piece by piece, in hopes of finding a way to surpass our physical mortality through aesthetic and a strong conceptual thought.
I believe that as an artist, my job is to fabricate new, conceptually intriguing works that allow the viewer to see a physical representation of my thoughts on the subject matter. My work should have a distinct voice; for without that, the words and thoughts my work should share will be silenced. This work should challenge the societal views of various topics, and stand firm in the debate. Through the mediums of sculpture and fiber art, I perform this task.
My name is Mackinley Motzer, and I am an artist.
