Triangulation = The tracing and measurement of a series or network in order to determine the distances and relative positions of points spread over a territory or region.
It is guidance not conveyance.
The triangulation taking form through the sculptural works by David Lee Black, Matthew Peake, and Laura White Carpenter guides through three distinctive viewpoints, arriving at a place of personal interpretation and surveyance. The path taken is suggestive only; the viewer is invited to journey at their own pace, taking in the differing artistic elements, visual symbols and references. There is poetry when three artists contribute to the structure of a theme, arriving together via the combined forces of voice and rhythm.
Through photography, interactive kinetic forms, and use of fragile and ephemeral materials that have come through drastic transformations themselves, these sculptors offer guidance and location-finding in ourselves. The collection is a metaphorical perspective upon perspective itself. The works are playful, imaginative, and thought-provoking, and are presented in unusual and dream-like ways. The meaning of which is entirely a matter of one’s own interpretation.
David Lee Black has embarked on a never-ending pilgrimage. His journey of image creation touches both the simple and sublime enroute. While immersed in the places, people and events that have become his vision and guide, David’s photographs are meant to evoke the emotional and spiritual interactions with the natural moment at hand. David’s photos invite those who view them to share in this captured sense of wonder. David’s photos project a sense of beautiful, ironic and absurd situations within everyday settings.

Matthew J. Peake is a physician, artist and dancer, whose trajectory has been one of personal exploration within the collaborative. His art-making is indelibly affected consciously or unconsciously by the conversations he has with artists, both living and dead. He finds ultimate the joy in the interaction of working harmoniously with others, seeking out collaborations with artists, poets, and photographers for his expressive alchemy. His is a mastery of many forms, rendering the human figure in movement and stillness, while equally at home with the realm of abstraction, with collages and assemblages of continuously repeating patterns of light and shadow.

Laura White Carpenter creates conceptual 3D work in a variety of materials from clay to metal, often mixing found materials from nature with our discards, exploring the relationship between humans and our earth. Interpreting the shapes, textures, and colors of architectural forms and nature into dynamic artwork, she invites the observer to more deeply explore our mysterious world. She has lived on four continents and remains intrigued by indigenous totemic art, exploring its enduring impact even as these worlds collide. (Image 4/4: “Chrysalis”)
