ARTIST STATEMENT FROM KEVIN CARON
My first love was for machinery. Its immaculate steel composition and constructed perfection afforded orchestrated movement, couched in the joy of solitude. My education as an artist is synonymously tied to the roads I have consumed on a motorcycle and behind the wheel of an 80,000 pound semi truck.
I spent more than 30 years meditating and molding shapes in my mind, so when an opportunity to sculpt my first piece presented itself, the transition from mental manipulation to the creation of physical structures was seamless and effortless.
Now I focus on the sensuality of shapes, the gentle rise and fall of their sides and junctures, seeking illusion and movement in contour and graceful proportion. I download shapes and spaces from my mind and allow them to flow through my hands, very much as I do when riding.
That intuitive force, fueled by the intellectual challenges of physical creation, drives me to create artwork that breathes its own life.
