Gone, back again. Gone, then back again. We notice their absence, even as their return is all but imminent.

Different time scales, these cycles,

Of heart beats,
Of wings,
Of birds,
Of migrations,
Of love and loss,

And until then we just wait for their songs.

Derek Weidman, born in 1982, lives in rural Pennsylvania a bit outside the city of Philadelphia. Initially studying philosophy in college, but a born artist, he choose to follow in the path of his father who was a bird carver. When he began turning in 2003 he has approached the lathe as a sculptor, primarily exploring and pushing the boundaries of multi-axis turning. His main effort was trying to create a visually descriptive and versatile language born out of the arcing and circular cuts of a lathe, and has spent well over a decade now building up a vocabulary of shapes and cuts. At the heart of many of his works he treats the lathe almost as an unusual camera, with every subject passing through its lens adding to a visually novel circular zoo of animals.
