Nature is abundant with sturdy patterns — blueprints for substructures that heal the psyche, built out of the everyday ruins of existence. Kyle Cottier's sculptural practice is rooted in the metaphysical study of underlying patterns and principles that give rise to the convalescence of the natural world. Within his work, the permanent cycle of growth and decay coexists with the presence of absence, informed by the essential human experience of processing loss.
Through a union of terrestrial and architectural constructs, his work inhabits the territory where entropy and geometry in the universe converge. He navigates these dualities of chaos and order, and existentially, life and death, to kindle a deeper psychological awareness of the interconnectedness between nature and mankind.
