Closing Reception - "Reckoning"

In this exhibition Webb displays more than 20 sculptures that highlight three series of works executed in the last four years.

Organic Spaces is a series in which new and dynamic environments are invented and which produce associative shapes that can be referenced to organisms and natural structures.

Pickle Project is a compilation of humorous works in which quartered ellipse shapes are three dimensionally transformed as is suggested by their given titles.

Bodies of Work is a series in which elements of the human figure are combined with mechanical machinery components to produce associations to beauty, work, and a body of knowledge that we as humans share in the fabric of our collective memory.
