Gravitation

2013 Jury's Choice Award

"I am interested in the relationship between nature and structural complexity, particularly relating to ‘free form’ architecture, where lines and shapes are approximated in order to create intricate geometric structures."

Intersection

The role of geometry in this recent body of sculpture represents an abstraction of nature, inspired by patterns that are infinite and ever changing. I am interested in the relationship between nature and structural complexity, particularly relating to ‘free form’ architecture, where lines and shapes are approximated in order to create intricate geometric structures. The skeletal construction method gradually brings the visual elements together while drawing with the material, inciting the viewer into a potential state of meaning.

Exes and Ohs

This work trys to pull some lightness out of a pretty contentious time. I'm working on making some fun. Exes and Ohs (X's and O's) is a sprawling painted steel piece that talks of another children's game (tic tack toe).

Brahe's Gate

The aesthetic intent of my work is not to create “junkyard art,” but to take industrial artifacts and alter or recombine them in such a manner as to create work that is modernist, resonant and wholly original while manifesting the aura of having been created from base raw material, i.e. cast bronze. Of course, there is, and should be, a subliminal sense of the processed heritage of the metal.
