THE DRIVING FORCE for Way, Shape or Form is how shadows are created, how you perceive it from the side and how all the pieces work together. These pieces are very physical: when you go up to them, they kind of push and pull. They create a relationship with you when you’re close to them, and when you’re further away, your eye takes on a more intellectual observation.”
— Artist Michael Kukla
