Ed McCullough: I have worked as a sculptor for most of my life. It was in a three-dimensional design course in college, much like the course I teach at Columbia College Chicago, that I became fascinated with space, form and time.
I soon had my own studio. It was well outfitted, pieces were in process and I was there working during most available hours. That was long ago: indeed, little has changed over the years except that what began as a fascination of space, form and time has now developed into something akin to awe.
The pursuit of new ideas notwithstanding, each sculpture I build becomes yet a further exploration of things I thought I knew. I am, in the words of the poet Rilke, ". . . always a beginner.
