Luce Center Quote
"Some pieces have been split from the log, accentuating the motion and twisting of the grain within." Todd Hoyer, 2000
Luce Center Label
Todd Hoyer uses rings in his work to "represent life's paths." He gouges scallops into the form, then burns and blackens the edges and interior. Ringed Series has a large crack down the side, splitting apart the rings and giving the piece an incomplete and fractured appearance.
