ANNE CRUMPACKER - BAMBOO SCULPTURE AND LIGHTING WORK
"My work interweaves scale and proportion - thin, medium and thick crosscut bamboo sections, the interplay of light and shadow - to create living topographies. My long immersion in Japanese aesthetics guides me as I work intuitively, following a path of discovery.
In developing the crosscut bamboo technique, I am contributing a new approach to a venerable material. Deconstructing bamboo into crosscut slices reveals its cellular makeup and illuminates its natural beauty and strength. Assembling the pieces allows patterns and rhythms to emerge that reflect the interconnection of forces in nature, from microscopic life to wave movement. Interconnectedness is the source, the revelation, and the energy I seek to express in all of my work."
