CONCEPT TO OBJECT… Portland-based Eric Franklin’s presentation will focus primarily on his artistic process, from concept to final object, and reveal the importance of combining corporal imagery with materials such as glass, light and electricity to produce a truly dynamic sculpture. As Eric says of his work: “Fluid luminous expression parallels ongoing biologic processes regarding adaptable and flexible form and function. Glass forms express light in different ways due to their physical architecture as well as the employment of a living body’s electromagnetic field. This dynamic relationship generates a dialogue of creative interaction. Inspired by the open system of biological structures and personal physical experiences in the natural environment, these objects use the plasticity of glass and light to construct an alternative narrative that questions inner function, outer expression and the continuity of matter in the process of human development”.
