Artist Statement

I believe the value in the work of art depends on how well artists understand their own work and be able to apply the idea into their work. When I am working on my piece, I learn how to response on the basis of society, humanity, and nature. It becomes my reflection of how I observe because I cannot ignore my own idea to be hidden in my piece. I believe that art provides another view on looking at society where everyone belongs to reflect each other and gives space and time to anticipate.

Artist Statement

This work is about the absurdity of trying to hold on to our presence in the face of our own mortality. Our time is short and we often misplace our efforts trying to control the momentum of our lives when our eventual absence is inevitable. I believe that we must force ourselves to live moment to moment in order to truly experience our existence, The cage is a trap where you are denied control over your own life and your sense of time is altered. There is a sinister nature to the work that is uncomfortable and will force you to consider how this experience of life differs from your own in terms of the placement of values.

Artist Statement

Many things in nature adhere to a particular rhythm or cycle. If a cycle is considered to be an occurrence or a series of occurrences, one in which certain events or phenomena repeat themselves in the same order or at the same intervals, then cycles exist in many forms – be it chronological as with seasonal changes or something more tangible like the spiral of a nautilus shell, rings of a tree or the formation of honeycombs.

Cycles exist on every scale imaginable. The manner in which planets orbit a sun, or how solar systems, star clusters and other interstellar bodies gravitate to form a galaxy exhibits fundamental laws of cycles. On a much smaller scale, molecules demonstrate repetitive qualities in their structural design. Cycles represent not only the acknowledgment of time and space, but also of life.

I sculpt objects that focus on the repetitive, rotational or angular in order to explore the mysticism of cycles. My goal is to create forms as beautiful as what surrounds us – naturally occurring wonders.

Artist Statement

We are acutely aware of the bitter sweetness of life; that it holds both good and equally bad times. This dichotomy is the basis of my work. Can an object or space be both light and dark? Funny and sad? Possess weightless and be heavy with burden? My sculpture, “The most beautiful part of being pulled to the earth” is a response to this very question. The kites, metaphorically represent childhood innocence, lightness and freedom but their physicality denies it. They are made of raw wood. They are heavy and weighted down with hefty threating wooden talismans. They are tied down in a ridged controlled frame in ordered rows. They are denied all of their float some metaphors by pulling them back down to earth. By loading them up with the burdens of life.
