About Joe Sorge
Connecticut sculptor Joe Sorge studied at the School of Visual Art (SVA) in New York City. Guided by seeing the organic forms that take place, materials and craftsmanship.
The works express fluidity and the resulting tension inherent in the material is balanced by the ensuing harmony of the sculptural object. The result is an expression that comes from a comprehensive understanding of the material and method. The work draws from the modernist vocabulary to create abstract, sometimes whimsical objects. Uniquely dramatizes the play between the horizontal plane and the vertical axis. The positive and negative spaces that result from the play of light, shadow and from the occasional transparency of the material.
Experimenting with materials such as steel, stone carving, genesa crystals, tiger eye alabaster and among others. Incorporating repurposed materials, a variety of colors, finishes and textures. Work that moves and interact with the environment.
