Art piece featuring David Lougee has kudzu, branches, logs, grass and rope. This hut is intended to create a space for Atlanta BeltLine users to interact with through new forms of natural abstraction.
My work explores different interactions between humanity and nature. I utilize installations as well as sculptural objects to address issues ranging from growth and decay to how we perceive reality according to one’s scale. The inherent beauty I find in landscape on the micro and macro levels influence my work aesthetically, while also inspiring an objective way of approaching my creation process conceptually. Whatever medium I wield is stretched beyond its common use, emphasizing the unique elements of the material and its possibilities. I collaborate with the material at hand carefully not imposing too much influence hence allowing its natural tendencies to peak through.
