My work uses spatial and material arrangements of the formal and the figurative as catalyst and crux to moments of aesthetic poise, tension, and reflection. Representational by idiom and conceptual by persuasion, this work partakes of the powerful human weakness for discerning transcendent pattern in the cosmos.
The figure at the nucleus of all of my sculptural works sparks a connection between the viewer and our human propensity for narrative as personal and communal catharsis. The sculptural figure broadcasts its visual aesthetic at a broadly accessible bandwidth; it speaks across boundaries of age and culture; it withstands the shifting moment, while marking the path in a flow of continuous change.
Firing this strange vision and calling is the heat and light thrown off by recurring revelation inherent in the studio practice: That its physical work and discipline are incarnational - the mind in generative collaboration with matter. That the constraints of hard necessity are both a binding and an emancipation of the artist’s hand. Work and art, patron and artist, public and individual - that each can be reformed and refined by the other.
