Zan Knecht

Grand Rapids, MI, United States

I am a Doctor of Women's Health and an Artist. From years of living at sea, staring at the horizon, swimming, mothering, loving / being loved, and staring at cells under a microscope, shapes burble up from the depths like mercury lined bubbles rising above me from a dive. The shapes will not let me rest until they come out of my hands in form and color. I am compelled to make things that show what I see and feel that words fall short of explaining. The more I make things, the more ideas demand to be made. I like my sculptures to stand like a note of a song, a thing of singular beauty in the landscape, changing with the light and weather and season and snow. I especially like to bring color to grey winter, still, potential energy to dawn, and warm embrace to dusk. I paint and sculpt outside and in my studio here in Grand Rapids, Michigan. My art is in collections around the world.
