Vince Skelly has a strong interest in forms that show the relationship between past, present and future. He draws from the relationship between ancient building forms and their similarity to contemporary architecture and furniture. All of his work being “carved from a single block,” Vince believes there is an amorphous relationship between the contemporary and the prehistoric, giving him a vast array of unified objects he desires to sculpt. He is transfixed by how ancient stools and prehistoric tools look perfectly placed in the modern world.
Born in 1987 (California), Vince moved to Portland after studying visual communication in San Francisco. He believes that mere beauty is superficial and in the end it is the spirit of an object that attracts us.
