Martin Spei

Creating and problem solving are the largest part of a sculptor’s mental work. All metaphor is derived from personal context and the art object remains, in the ultimate sense, a symbol. I want to engage the audience with clear references so that the meaning and story behind the sculpture are relevant.

My work expresses my desire to understand why and how people do the work they do. My artwork is representational. I work in the figure because I believe it can permit immediate access to interpretation and connection. I am drawn to images of business and politics as I explore the human reaction to these forces. I want to capture the context of societal norms while portraying the inner dialog of an individual as I strive to share the humorous irony I see in our simultaneous connection and isolation.
