Storytelling

BY PATRICK COLE
@ VOL 27 ON APR 12, 2016

Patrick Cole (b. 1986 in London, UK).
Working in the mediums of sculpture and performance, Cole’s work shifts between the Bardic tradition and the actions of a contemporary prop comic. Historically a Bard worked as a storyteller, seeking to create catharsis for the general public. The Bards’ stories would satirise the lives of his audience and act as a social cleanser. A prop comic uses props and staging to enhance the performance, using these tools to connect with and provoke a reaction from the audience. Cole’s work has these ideas at its core.

What Sculpture Gives to Me, What I Hope Sculpture Can Give to Everyone

BY BILL MCGRATH
@ VOL 3 ON MAY 12, 2016

Contemplating retirement after successive careers as an attorney then city administrator in his hometown of Batavia, Illinois, Bill McGrath has begun pursuing his love for art, specifically working in metal sculpture. Sculpture, like any artistic endeavor, presents the opportunity to express oneself to others, but also requires some emotional distance to remain true to one’s visions. He also shows how public art, sculpture in particular, can add to a community’s sense of place by speaking to values, history, and universal experiences, such as fear.
