We are excited to present the work of Rod McCormick!
Join us for the opening reception on June 1 from 6-8pm.
I like resistant media. Pushing against a recalcitrant material forces one to define and clarify one's ideas. As an art school student I took to metal and to this day there is nothing I like better than beating metal sheet with hammers and chasing tools. Years later I decided to try my hand at 3D computer modeling. I found that I took to digital design—as it turns out, CAD programs are also recalcitrant in a charming way.
My current work is 3D printed jewelry. What drew me to metal, to Craft, was the idea of thinking through making. The possibility of finding ideas in material and process. I respond to computer modeling programs in a similar fashion. My work is often inspired by the personality of the software; the pieces are improvisations of non-materials and process.
