“I have been building sculpture since I was a child. Somehow I have always been fascinated with how
things went together, not just how they worked, but the blending of parts to make a whole. My
Grandfather was an architect. I saw how he would draw out specific details on how to
connect materials, insuring that the end result was both structural and aesthetic. Paying
attention has always been important to me. I try to see the whole while making sure the details
work out. I try to step back and make sure there is a good reason for my actions. I look at objects
for themselves and how they sit in space. My art education has been both long and
unconventional. I have been to art schools, I have been to wooden boat building school. I have
worked as an architectural draftsman. I have built convertibles out of new sports cars. I have
worked in art galleries. I have built wooden boats. I have fabricated marine stainless steel
parts for sailboats. I have built stair cases and doors, hand rails and hinges. I have been building
sculpture all along.” – MacRae Wydle
