The stark contrast reminds us of the paradox within which we live, work and love. Sculpture as a medium is interesting as it moves beyond the 3D and into utilizing the space around it as well. Corey's sculptures are a combination of a clean line and strength. In the metaphorical sense, the metalwork visible to the naked eye is what remains after all else has been cut and fired away. It is a testament of endurance and perseverance.
|Abstract by Corey Best|
In Corey's own words: "I’ve always been drawn to how things rise and fall. I see it in individuals, scenes, neighborhoods, and buildings. I notice the endurance and decay. I’m fascinated by the way things go in and out of balance. I weld shapes that deal with these themes. I want to show the beauty of an imperfect world. I want to show how we persevere."
