James Stuart Kane, Sculptor
My work is serial in nature - - a continuum of idea and form
now spanning a period of many years.

It is the geometric form in the sculpture and the two-dimensional renderings which are the obvious link between these works. These forms are very important to me in that they are the structural basis upon which a three-dimensional language is rooted in the ideograph (idea-picture). The generative, receptive, processial, and formative content is always present because of my belief that everything that exists must operate as at least one of these conditions. The shaft, tetrahedron, and pyramids tend to be generative as is the cross; circles or spheres are receptive; undulations, waves, and spirals are models of process; and the square and cube is the purest volumetric form of the formative condition. Even in my earlier works I intuitively used some of these forms in conjunction with more figurative elements.
