Why Make Art?
I am fascinated with connections…the underlying structures surrounding us and our relation to them. The essence of both our natural and built environments rely upon rock, minerals, and dirt for existence. Even our skeletal core, relies on similar elements for form and life. What happens when these deeply buried structures and connections are revealed? What exists below the surface?
My current work searches underneath our outer skin, paring form to its essence and exploring the structures that bind us together. I am interested in the relationships discovered between forms, manifesting themselves through modularity, space, surface and texture. These forms may be simple and monolithic or composed of hundreds of elements. Yet they all seek to express those elemental connections shared between land, community and ourselves.
I welcome exploring opportunities to create unique art installations or commissioned work!
