contemporary sculpture

 

Presently my work is centered on the human form as a visual symbol. Beyond it's physical presence, the figure exists as a reflection of our perception of the ancient, the eternal. For me, these vestiges invoke a deep appreciation of our origins and a sacred connection to creation that exceeds physical boundaries.

From an initial perception of the figure's rudimentary forms, the viewer is drawn into ever increasing surface detail. This process reveals an interaction between the figure and elements that mirror the natural world, describing a sense of fusion between humankind and nature.

These seemingly mute figures speak to our spirituality. They signal a need for quiet introspection, inviting us to journey back to that place where we define ourselves. They remind us of our legacy as we relive the story of creation, unfolding as it has through the ages.

Let us experience grace by living our parts well.

REVIEWS

 

"The figure here is like that mythical first human molded from clay...An elegant and subtle piece, the surface is embedded...inviting the viewer to come close, while the scale and proportion brings him into a relationship."  

 

Carl Little


"Your ability to fuse raw archaism with the elegance of classicism is, to say the least, striking. There is no denying that your ability to translate your expressive vocabulary into an inventive range of experimental materials is rare and noteworthy."
 

Lorettann Gascard PhD
Director, Thoreau Art Gallery
