My work stands as a reminder of the connection between man and nature as the world around us becomes increasingly removed from this essential and most basic union. While the metals I use are clearly man-made, the result of my collaboration with them is a blurring of the divide between nature and structure, space and form.
My approach is intuitive and process-driven. My process
in sculpture is a process of discovery through making. I have a
conversation with my materials, luring out of them the dynamic forces of
nature. I allow the work to evolve, probing shapes, investigating its
capacity to change. I seek to reveal the nature of the material,
allowing it to take on a life of its own.
