"When it comes to abstracts, I find that the simpler the artwork, the better. It becomes more magical, more dimensional with its simplicity."
When creating his abstract sculptures, Terry Taube begins with a vision, then the artwork evolves, depending upon the material he uses, the colors that develop, his mood and feelings. When Taube first began creating paper cast sculptures, he used them as a way to reproduce nature. Today, though still utilizing nature as the tool, much of his artwork has evolved to become more abstract. One of his favorite techniques is weaving his paper castings. They are primitive and yet contemporary, ancient and modern at the same time. "They become transcendental. They bring out the best in me."
