Profile

Elaine Treadwell, Sculptor

Sculpture: Vessel forms . I also create mixed media works on paper.
As a sculptor I work primarily with the forms of Vessels and Nests. My current expressions are begun with a paper mache and plaster mix, sometimes encaustic and mosaic overlay techniques are applied to their surfaces. Each one expresses a quality in the natural world or a shape that grows from the found objects I collect. When I begin to shape a new piece I rarely have any idea how it will develop. I enjoy being surprised. When creating two dimensional mixed media works on paper my focus is quite different. The foundation of sacred geometry and years of contemplative practice are shaped into mandalas that tell the stories of my inner life. While appearing to be quite different, these two directions of my artistic expression create a balance. I need both ways of working to find my balance as an artist.
