My sculpture is based on the idea of 3/5/8 mathematical beauty, suggesting everything in nature can be broken down into those proportions and that everything is a structural spiral. The finished sculpture is graceful, ethereal, soft, and happy although it comes from rough, cold, rigid steel. It’s not about making a social or political statement or regurgitating a bygone aesthetic or art movement, my sculpture is about form, lines, and movement from the depths of my own imagination, that engage the natural environment in an organic way. I want my sculpture to play a visual trick, a balancing act, and contradict the very nature of the material I use to produce it. I want the viewer to see it floating and balancing delicately with a confusing afterthought of the enormous weight involved.
Sustainability is important to me, especially in public art. I use recycled steel to create with and I use only the most environmentally friendly and sustainable industrial coatings. I also take pride in building my own equipment to fabricate with. I have hand built, from all salvaged materials, an industrial rolling machine that allows me to push the limits of my imagination.
