Description


Opdyke’s process is open-ended; he begins with a few structural rules and a limited kit of components, and allows the work to grow intuitively. He likens the building process to metastasis: “a barely-controlled accumulation of elements leading to decisions and forms I would never have anticipated or predicted.” The result of this guided entropy is exemplified in large sculptures such as Zenith (2008) and Dredge (2007).
