Robert Pulley

Grew up in the American Midwest where frequent solitary walks in the woods, along the creeks and rivers of rural Indiana etched strong impressions into his memory of the varied forms, colors and textures. Evidence of the effects of time were everywhere in the rock strata, glacial till, and aboriginal artifacts. Pulley found a sense of wonder that embraced mysteries of nature, of change and of time.

In my creative process Pulley says "there is always a time of free improvisation using easily manipulated materials on a small scale. The materials may have qualities of a found object, chance forms that must be reacted to, much as a jazz musician riffs off a casual theme. The resulting models are very crude, casual and many. A chosen few undergo editing, refinement and transformation as they are built into full size sculptures."
