Scott Leipski

Gladstone, MI, United States

Someplace between reality and fantasy, my sculptures explore childhood and recollections of the past. I am a story teller at heart. I share my stories and childhood fascinations in the hope that the viewer rediscovers their own, a mutual reminiscence. My assemblages are at times deliberately ambiguous. A sense of whimsy is displayed that usually belies a deeper, sometimes darker, narrative. Intuitively I select and assemble the objects allowing my thoughts to flow freely during the sculpting process. The objects chosen and their placement are meant to evoke a sense of play perhaps lost but not forgotten to the viewer. The work invites my audience to draw upon their experience and imagination, and discover a unique reality. Largely self-taught, I regularly explore new hand building techniques and glaze treatments. My belief is that the creative process is the most effective vehicle for artistic growth even when inspiration is low. Experimentation is the norm rather than the exception in my studio. Through constant work, ideas arise, skill levels are raised and new narratives are realized.
