Exhibit by Joel S. Allen
My creative work first develops from a passion and pleasure for making things. Formally, my work is a physical description of the way my thoughts feel. Combining the elements of process and repetitive motion, time finds a record within the materials.

The internal dialogue is expressed externally, stacking layer upon textured layer for further consideration. With impassioned patience, I search for that intimate space between time and material where the rhythm of thought and dexterity intertwine in a lyrical dance. I relish the unending search for perfection – always reaching for the elusive harmonic concert of form, subject matter and content that binds the senses with the mind and heart. It is for me, a most splendid romance between thinking and making.
