Mike Helke

The action of my hand can track the memory or energy of an experience through illusive rhythms generated by positive and negative shapes, to build & process forms and marks.  This can inspire a sensory response, visually and tactilely, offering a sense of pleasure, visually and conceptually –  both for me as the maker and for the user.  This state provides momentary relief and a feeling of delight – a temporary sensation, almost, but not quite tangible or definable. At its best, it is a lively sensation made seductive by its fleetingness. Each piece physically and conceptually records an animate sensibility derived from my experience. This record is the catalyst for a call and response relationship that exists between maker, object, and user.
