Three Flames - Kingsport Public Art Sculpture

“Three Flames” by Shawn Morin

I have long approached sculpture through the use of multiple materials. Granite, marble, limestone, steel, stainless steel, bronze, iron, glass and wood can be found in one or more combinations within the majority of my work.  The incorporation of colors and textures, as well as a multitude other associated physical, spiritual, and  tactile qualities inherent to these materials are also of great importance. However, for me, the overarching truth of my work is that compositional complexity can only be achieved by the constant use of multiple shapes and forms. These shapes and forms by themselves are of no great value or consequence to anyone other than the minimalist, which I am not.  However, when these simple, benign shapes are put together in similar fashion to the way a child plays with blocks, one can immediately see that there are literally limitless compositional opportunities.
