June 2006: Guruhans Singh Kroesen Sculpture
Guruhans Singh Kroesen's artistic expression has been heavily influenced by his schooling for eight years at a Sikh boarding school in the Himalayas in India. The depth of his experience there was in contrast to his experiences when he returned to the United States and entered a military school. He chose steel and stone as his medium. Steel being a rigid and an intensely geometric medium provides a contrast to the fluidity and organic nature of his work. His work requires a manipulation of three-dimensional surfaces and the surfaces created by those perspectives. Influenced by the linear motion in nature his concern is to capture form and vitality and decipher the intrinsic energy between interacting shapes.
