Forrence has been interested in art for many years, and although he was first drawn to photography, sculpting and printmaking were the mediums that ultimately attracted him the most. He first began taking photography classes at Clinton Community College then transferred to PSUC after the persuasion of his professors.
It wasn’t until he transferred to PSUC that Forrence became interested in fine art and sculpting. He said he looked at a lot of kinetic work when seeking inspiration in the beginning of his career but has since moved to static works too. Kinetic art refers to a type of art that is being propelled by something — the viewer, environment or motor. Static refers to something that is motionless.
Jon created this sculpture and several others while serving as an intern at JSP in 2017.
