These Chaos works demonstrate Jedd Novatt's smaller, more intimate sculptures, ranging in size between fourteen to thirty-three inches tall.
Working in bronze, Novatt's sculptures push towards complexity and escape from the traditions of minimalism. Although influenced by a multitude of artists, Novatt is particularly interested in the Basque sculptor Jorge Oteiza, the teacher of Eduardo Chillida, who represented a move from expressionism to abstraction.
"To reflect the counterintuitive order in Chaos my work relies ultimately on completely random acts of faith... arrival; to force the viewer to stop, observe and see; without any obvious connection to political or social phenomenon. The Greeks defined Chaos as the nothingness out of which the first objects of existence appeared - sky, earth and the sea. A space lacking in orientation and order, yet out of which emerges all that makes up our collective experience with scale and finally form.", Jedd Novatt.
