A picture of John Dickinson

John Dickinson

I try to create natural forms in my sculptures so that they will suggest many things. Often, different things to different people, though there are exceptions. Although my sculpture is abstract, I do not resist when a work moves towards something more figurative - for instance, when a figure or hand should appear. My work is intuitive. I sometimes start with a log, for me a blank canvas, and my challenge is to make it interesting. Another time I might start with a piece of wood that already has an interesting feature, and then my challenge is to extend that interest by adding more. I use a turntable, which I made from an abandoned wheelchair, to consider my work from all angles as I attempt to create interest from all angles. I hope my sculptures will stir your imagination.
