Statement:

My work in sculpture and mixed media began during graduate studies in architecture with explorations of the relationship and the connection or joining of varying material. These studies allow for the development of a kind of specialized language, a language in which the vocabulary and grammar are derived by my particular view of the materials and how their particular qualities allow for of define interconnectedness and/or conflict. These studies allow for a unique ‘statement’ about a particular issue or concept that is being considered told through the language of materials themselves.
Currently, my work has been focused on concepts of transformation and 'completion' of the weathered, decayed or grotesque. Also present is the re- presenting of materials that are generally viewed as ordinary, sometimes undesirable to reveal in them an unexpected depth and/or beauty. There is often the suggestion of the architectural and scaled representation, and while sometimes part of a broader design process, each piece is intended to stand on its own representing a complete thought at a particular time and place.
