Artist Phil Lonergan
Campton, New Hampshire USA
My pieces reflect my technical training and often include fine carving, detailed metal and wood work, and large, functional-looking components that resemble tools, vehicles, and household objects. Transformed from the mundane to the metaphorical, my sculptures invite viewers to question their assumptions about what an object is capable of.
In this piece, I wanted to express visually the kind of ominous feeling that can pop up when we’re alone in a dark forest. It’s a feeling that owes a lot to the fairy tales we were told as children. My hope is that this piece evokes the kind of abstract terror that the forest can elicit, as well as the sense of comfort we take from our safe little homes in the midst of the danger.
The views expressed by our artists in their artist statements do not necessarily represent the views of our art galleries.
