Through my sculptures I seek to activate a deeper consciousness and conversation within ourselves beyond the incompleteness of words. My sculptures are the manifestation of an internal process, one that taps into ancient and intuitive knowledge. Be it a fistful of clay or a crucible of bronze, what is expressed is an evolving expression of myself as well as a sculpture.
As narratives, the sculptures may explore concepts of duality, acknowledging light and shadow. Others depict beauty and proportion found throughout nature as a higher essence of being and oneness. Some pieces probe timeless questions of humanity through contemporary interpretation of myth, metaphor and social commentary.
Levity is utilized as a tonic and protest for the paradoxes of the human condition.
