Things We Carry

The concept for this series derives from ancient myths and sagas, which I believe are part of the collective human history. To observe these myths and rituals various traditions use masks. I have replaced the mask with animal remnants to develop and symbolize psychological and mythological meaning.

Intimate
Stranger

Intimate Stranger

Intimate Stranger is paradoxical; the tension of opposites. To hold these diametric opposites and dismantle their perceptions and projections, are my intentions with this series. The capacity to hold and reflect on the depth of shadow is where this work originates.

The Japanese art of repairing broken pottery, Kintsugi, honors the breakage and repair of the vessel, which in turn presents the work whole and beautiful, rather than something to discard. My focus is to create personal emancipation and to provide a sanctuary for the sensitivity of the soul, and to evoke a third expression to bring forth a new form from these opposing tensions.

To access the gold we quest, one must descend into the darkness and it is there that we extract the gold.

The Relationship Series

These forms are rooted in classical design, shaped organically, balanced and self-contained. An arabesque line guides a viewer up and around the sculpture to create harmony within these complex shapes.
