Rich Tarsia welcome to timeforwaves. Knowing some of my thoughts and
experiences will help you see what has inspired me to create my sculptures.
Growing up near a beach has an impact
on a persons lifestyle and way of thinking. I gained a respect for the forces of
nature and learned how to harness those forces. Surfing and windsurfing give you
a rush that's hard to explain. I think it has something to do with being on the
edge of control and insanity. Pushing to go a little faster or surfing waves a
little bigger just makes the rush a little higher! I live for that high
I've tried to recreate some of that energy and intensity in my sculptures.
Recreating waves frozen in time sends my mind on a journey. Flashbacks of great
rides, the times when that intensity was peeking. I just wish I could shrink
down and ride my wave sculptures.
get a satisfied feeling when nature gives me visions of dolphins playing. Or
admiring a shark or tiger for their power and grace. Thoughts of their on going
struggle to hunt down and catch pray to survive. The cycle seems so simple
yet brutal. One wrong move and it's all over. I feel a rush of emotions when I
create some sculptures. I want to send your imagination and emotions on a wild ride!
Unique and extraordinarily diverse life
forms inhabits Earth. All
demonstrating fantastic abilities to adapt and strive even in the harshest
environments. Contemplate the countless number of planets in the universe. Natures ability to strive is
undisputable. I know there's life out there. Imagine what it must look like!
Some of my sculptures portray my revelations. Hopefully they open your mind to
the endless possibilities. So if some of my sculptures seem out there, it's
probably because that's where my mind was at the time.
Now that you have a
little background info on the artist, maybe you might find a deeper appreciation
for the art. I want to share my thoughts and feelings with the world. Enjoy the
journey! Your feedback is welcome.
