My artist practice comes from the curiosity and excitement of discovering and creating relationships between materials, space, light, and the felt sense of an experience.
Essentially, my process is building while moving toward reduction and simplicity. I work both backwards and forwards gathering inspiration from materials, ideas or the site. Sometimes an idea calls for exploration of materials; other times a shape is looking for meaning and still in other opportunities, a place is calling to be known.
The maquettes are mounted on bases and so are meant to be seen as sculptures as well as models for sited sculpture. This is play. Reducing the scale of an object, then siting it in an imaginary landscape creates a symbol that resonates with pleasure and presence.
The drive to make vertical wood and steel pieces is guided by the visual influence of structures as diverse as sailboat rigging, oil wells, trees and fragments of ruins. I have a fascination with the space that is created between elements. I use materials to highlight the emptiness between stillness.
