Joseph P Dolinsky
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Park Slope

Media:Sculptural;
Genre:Abstract;


ARTIST STATEMENT: Joseph Dolinsky’s most recent sculptures are created by carving into a solid block of clay; the form of the work begins as a hole or negative space in the clay. Plaster or Aqua-Resin is mixed with dyes/pigments and then poured into the void. This allows the movement of colors to spontaneously integrate into the fabric of the work itself, opposed to applying paint to the surface. The clay is then peeled off and the sculpture is revealed. This method is chosen to convey a sense of unity, drawing from the idea of the collective unconsciousness and individual components creating a whole. Dolinsky’s work explores the idea of intangible and abstract space. His investigation into this concept started as a series of paintings with figures emerging from abstract environments. Often the figures are interacting with and moving throughout this space. This abstract space represents the omnipresent, invisible frequencies that exist all around us, such as light, sound, radio, brainwaves, or even an ethereal movement. His sculptural work is a three dimensional representation of these earlier paintings. The sculptures of abstract brushstrokes add another dimension, taking the painting off of the canvas. They are a conversation about the similarities of sound and light, and how we utilize and experience both. His representational work is also driven by the process and materials. He uses the materials characteristics and associations to render the concepts. The different casting techniques and approaches to carving relate to the materials innate qualities and expose the object in a different light.
