SCULPTURE

My sculpture style has evolved over time, but there tend to be common themes of decay, obsolescence, and wear.  Despite the depressing connotations of these descriptors, I find beauty in the evidence of use, of duties served, and of adaptation. I also enjoy humor in my work at times, as a further juxtaposition against the melancholy overriding gesture.

 

I enjoy assemblage as my primary medium, incorporating found objects and parts of disassembled machines and tools, retaining their analog and mechanical sense of utility but declassifying them by using them inappropriately, or where no function is readily apparent. I also like to add electric light to pieces to heighten the drama and to intensify the emotional response.
