ARTIST STATEMENT:

Jamie Calderwood is a sculptor and installation artist whose work explores the interrelationship of art, architecture, and the natural world. Drawing from surrealist and minimalist art, as well as 1970’s land art, his pieces often reference natural and architectural symbolism and frequently incorporate or reconfigure found domestic objects.
