Monumental Sculpture
By Jeffrey Schiller

Vore #8, 1984, 7'8" x 4'6" x 2'8", welded steel

Jeffrey Schiller makes his sculpture by taking sheets of steel and cutting and twisting them into forms that are at the same time organic and geological. The image is somewhere between an unfolding life form and crystals.

What ever the process Schiller uses to make these massive structures, there is evidence that transformation is a major theme in this work. The heavy sheets of metal become a living membrane, a growing corpus that has both intent and presence. It is both powerful and inspired.
