Begun during a three-year stint in Japan, my current series Drawings In Three Dimensions is the outgrowth of an ongoing sketch journal. Each sculpture is based on a drawing which is, itself, based on a few abstract black marks made on a white page. Like solving puzzles, I translate the initial marks into a visual law which governs the completion of the drawing. The finished sketch is then broken apart and reconstructed as a three-dimensional object. Using a combination of ink, acrylic and enamel, I add details to hand-shaped pieces of thermoplastic and affix them to birch panels with brass hardware and adhesives.The resulting works, which only inspire names upon completion, often seem like two-dimensional sketches when viewed frontally, but always reveal more dimensionality when considered from other perspectives.

American-French artist Natale Adgnot [b. 1974] is best known for her abstract wall sculptures made from thermoplastic adhered to painted panels. Her work taps into cognitive biases such as stereotyping and pareidolia (seeing patterns in random information) to reflect on the elusiveness of truth. Alternating between grayscale and shockingly colorful palettes, her graphic compositions blur the line between drawing and sculpture and invite interpretation by the viewer like seeing shapes in clouds. Adgnot earned a BFA in graphic design in 1996 and went to fashion school in Paris 10 years later. After a career including stints at Christie’s and Chanel, she applied herself full time to her studio practice in 2014. Her experience making garments by hand for haute couture runways eventually led her to focus on sculpture. While living in Tokyo from 2015 to 2018, she began using thermoplastic to work three-dimensionally. Adgnot has been the subject of solo exhibitions in Tokyo and New York and has participated in numerous group shows and art fairs. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn.
