Terry L. Hritz

Personal experiences always influence and shape everything I do. From my childhood to my current work, I pull inspiration from everyday interactions. Whether an adventure, or a private tragedy, to even a simple material exploration, such experiences become the concepts of my art.

Through the manipulation of wood, metal, plastics and ceramics with traditional sculptural methods and new digital fabrication machinery, I capture these encounters in three-dimensional objects and installations. Elements of utility, minimalism and nature are present in each work, which symbolize various aspects of my life.
