“Like a human arbiter of shape and scale, Welfe Bowyer conjures momentary monuments hewn from metals that pre-date human existence and will long outlive our entire species. Enriched with the vast history of time, orchestrated by the soft organic manipulation of his own skills and imbued with the entropic fate of its own eventual demise, each piece in Microlith is a testament of materiality, process and property. They remind us of the very earliest beginnings, the human capacity to affect change, and the expansive reach of endless time.”
