I strive to create work that is engaging and original. I primarily work non-objectively so that my intention is to not directly represent an object or individual from life. I do, however, often use proportions and forms from the real world as inspiration. I believe that sculpture should be exciting and new to the viewer and yet still contain an element of familiarity. My hope is that upon experiencing my work the viewer has the feeling of being shown something they have never seen before yet they still feel strong, indefinable and compelling connection.
Kyle is currently working on two sculpures for each of the four trailheads (eight total) for the Stringer's Ridge trail area in Chattanooga.
Appalachian State University graduate student Bradley Green wrote an original composition inspired by Kyle's sculpture "Journey to the Top of Looking Glass," currently in the Rosen Sculpture Competition at ASU. Click Here to listen
