These sculptures have to work from every viewpoint. My goal is to compel viewers to move around the artwork and have its meaning slowly unfold.
When integrating sculpture with existing architecture, I develop unique works that blend with the environment, style, and social context of the particular space. This requires careful study of meaning of the architecture, the relationship of the space to environmental factors like light, colors and building materials already present, and the locations larger historical context.
I like the contrast of low and high relief co-existing in my wall-mounted sculptures. I love the transition from imagery that is flat, like a painting or photograph, to fully three-dimensional sculpture; creating the feeling of going from things past to the vital here and now.
I like the element of surprise created by artwork in unexpected places. I choose novel and unusual locations, allowing people to see its’ surroundings with a fresh point of view.
