Becoming is the word that represents my artistic journey as a sculptor. But more
significantly, becoming describes the transformation that unfolds for all of us
Subjects include abstract faces, figures, and designs all aimed to capture and convey
the energy that powers transformation. To express this, lines and shapes become
messengers of movement, surfaces change from matte to reflective and edges
transition from smooth to jagged. The steel is literally infused with transformative
energy through cutting, grinding, bending and shaping.
My intention is to meld these processes with my passion and my ideas to generate
sculpture that brings my artistic vision to life while engaging the viewer to entertain,
excite and inspire.
This body of sculpture explores contradiction in our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.
Steel expresses contradiction through its material properties: rigid but malleable,
light but strong, matte but reflective. Using steel as a medium, I deconstruct the
forms of faces and figures into abstract planes that are juxtaposed to establish
visual tension. Designed to be both representational and abstract, the final sculptures
are imbued with contradiction.
My intention is to engage the viewer in a dialog directed at a more complete
understanding of what makes us human.
