In SOFT BLOOM, Tepaz continues her investigation of form and material while experimenting with the scale and presentation of her work. She depicts symbols and forms with no premeditated structure, only an immediate moment, dissected and rearranged. Tepaz works the balance between surface treatment and color selection and draws correlations from her influences of flowers, language, the body and sounds of fluidity. The bold curved edges of the sculptures cut through the space around them activating a lyrical energy and force, organic shapes open like petals or gaping mouths. Both the work and the viewer are free to shift and transform perspectives at every angle as each form unfolds naturally, creating an environment for mindful contemplation.
