Currently working primarily in fabricated stainless steel and bronze, the curvilinear, often weightless appearance of my pieces, creates a visual contradiction with heavy metal materials, challenging the fundamentally static nature of sculpture. Many of my pieces are kinetic and can be turned, rotated, or even spun, allowing observers to change their viewpoint. Presenting such mass in motion with seemingly effortless fluidity invites a challenge to the viewer’s perception of the sculpture.
My work focuses on elegant minimalism and cleanliness of line and shape, creating a timeless aesthetic. Inspired by the meandering and knotting of morning glory vines, I am fascinated by nature’s ability to weave itself so exquisitely into a knot—a historical symbol of unity and connection. My work also draws from studies of ancient cultures in Italy and Greece, including the classical columns that symbolize humanity’s passage through time.
Exploring the relationship between organic design and inorganic materials has led me to a robust conceptual balance of how things grow, bond together, and respond to their neighboring environment. I often choose materials that can reflect, absorb, or blend with their surroundings.
From blue skies to the reflection of the viewers themselves, each person’s experience will be unique, and the sculpture will forever respond to its current reality. Observers have an extemporaneous and poetic experience in the balance between timelessness and an ephemeral moment.
Even after more than forty years of sculpting, I still have an unquenchable thirst for creating sculpture, the urge to challenge boundaries and conventions, and a desire to inspire viewers for generations to come.
