Elisabeth Page Purcell
NY, NY
Neighborhood: Park Slope

Media:Sculptural;


ARTIST STATEMENT: Each piece of stone sculpture begins with the need to create a form with volume, to capture a feeling of sensuality while revealing and enhancing the unique qualities and integrity of the stone itself. By joining the sense of touch and the sense of sight, the mind is given another language to decipher and use to create images in stone. Many of the abstract forms I create are happened upon by the close observation of the contours existing in the stone itself. Sometimes the mind and imagination join to interpret the forms as if they are in the memory and the uniting of composition, movement and flow of line come together in an instant. If an organic form comes into my mind before I have found a stone I then find the stone that will fit the dimensions and characteristics of the imagined form that I wish to bring to reality. Stone carving, because of the demand of time and physical effort, creates a sense of intimacy with the stone itself. It is impossible not to become involved in the romance between the stone and the creative process; it is this experience that draws me to stone and carving.
