Angles

"When you realize that it's two sides of the same structure then you start to understand it's more… about our depth", says Behrens. "…There's always another angle. And to see two angles at the same, it really helps solidify that multiple viewings, multiple encounters are required to really understand the complexity of any individual."

Partial Glimpse

"At any one view, you only get a partial glimpse of something. And so, as you move around the sculpture… you start to learn a little bit more about what's inside," says Behrens. "…It's basically a metaphor for coming up on anything or anyone who is new to you and you have to have different viewpoints, different angles to try to really find, as close as you can get, to a full understanding of what you're encountering."

"One of the things that a sculpture like Sioux City let's us do, because it doesn't represent anything in particular, is that it opens up our imagination to everything," says Behrens.

Sioux City is part of the Sioux City Art Center's permanent collection and can be seen now in the Permanent Collection on View Exhibition.

The Art of the Brick

Feb 24, 2016

"The Art of the Brick," an exhibition of plastic-brick sculptures by Nathan Sawaya, is on display at the Sioux City Art Center through May 8. Though the medium, plastic brick, gives one the idea that the exhibition will appeal primarily to children, the visitor is quick to realize that the sculptures are asking bigger, "adult," questions. 

Terry Karpowicz

Terry Karpowicz, sculptor, says that he has "seen too many people in his life sit back and wait for things to happen." His art is not reactive, it's proactive. His life, it might be said, is also proactive. Painting didn't engage his full body and self, so he moved to sculpting. Not knowing how to marry materials, he went to Britain to study medieval windmills. After losing his leg in a motorcycle accident, he sought the movement he desired in his art.
