Sculpture and urban situations merge in my pursuit of public art.
I like the idea that Public Art is a form of urban acupuncture, properly pinned to amplify an aspirations. Through this I hope to provocatively tie people to a place and to each other.
My work is centered on experimenting in the public realm. I integrate an intuitive approach to public space and public art to create sculptures that reveal a deeper meaning of that place.
Each new site is unique. Its never a blank slate, rather a collection of related objects. There are reason for things, their placement and their history. Each new site yields a unique framework for a gestural response. Complex site conditions expose a special quality of a place.
You will find at the core of my work are concepts that strive for a respectful harmony, experiential engagement, a contemplative place to occupy, and some sort of imagined public function. These concepts drive what happens next; scale, shape, textures, colors, materiality, the illumination, a visual narrative. There is always a wide range of outcomes. I like it this way; it somehow ensures invention, mystery and new directions.
