Artist statement

Maria Bordelon 

Cage wire, softwoods, and wood veneers are my materials of choice to make sculpture.  My works are unassuming, standing forms and wall hung sculpture.  The use of simple forms and simple shapes are at the beginning of creativity for me. 


Relationships are a routine part of daily life and my work reflects upon the concepts of both connected-ness and contrasts in routine relationships.  The visual comparison of parts to the whole, point up both polar and bi-polar magnetic qualities.


I accomplish harmony with five elements: comparison of adjacencies, surface affinity, dominance, textural finishes, and finally color, as my sculpting tools.
