ALYS MYERS

Nature teaches us about the brevity of our human lives, the cycles of life and death, and that all things are subject to impermanence. I embrace the beauty found in rust, decay, decomposition, and disintegration, which are all part of life.

There is equal weight in the light and the heavy if we can see it in the right perspective, as nothing is really gone it’s just recycled into something else.

Ideas fit this theory as well as each bit of originality must come from another thought that came before it, or a deconstruction of that thought. I feel any innovation and originality in my sculpture, whether large or small, are humbled by this concept as the sculpture chooses its own form. As the great William Shakespeare wrote in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, “Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind.”
