Terrence Karpowicz wears many hats as a sculptor and is a commenter on the precious state of our climate and world. He presents us with reminders of the history of time through boulders that display the continuum of earth’s evolving processes. He can even fashion whimsical (pink bodies) records of his own passage of time. But nothing says Terrence Karpowicz more than a seemingly impossible point of contact between disparate, organic materials.

In “Maintaining Union,” Terry again fashions an implied relationship between granite and steel. How three large sections of granite are formed around steel and seem to float is the beauty at the heart of this work. The tension is formidable as your own understanding of gravity seems at odds with what is in front of you.
