Peter Stankiewicz - sculpture

I'll be posting some of his drawings soon as well. Stankiewicz's work is understated and profound. Sometimes it is reserved, but with an underlying nervous tension that makes it feel mysteriously pregnant with a strange energy. It can be somber yet feel oddly humorous. You want to laugh the kind of laugh that you worry might be inappropriate - but you just can't help yourself. There's a distinct honesty about the work that I've always admired and an originality that has always inspired me.
