Rachel Lauren Kaster
I am a sculptor:
My primary mediums are glass, wood and steel.
I create, I consume, I destroy, I observe, I internalize, and I respond.
I am told facts that I must never forget to question.
I am told there are rules but I refuse to be confined.
I am limited only by the laws of physics.
I am a part of everything of this earth.
I affirm my existence through the tradition of manipulation and transformation.
I begin my process with personal conversations and I realize my thoughts through form, material and color.
I utilize structure to draw upon association.
I strive to create sculptural objects that are compelling.
I engage the viewer with familiar objects and beckon the observer to create their own narrative.
