As an artist who draws inspiration from materials, I am interested in exploring the connections between what is present, physical and what is illusion as it relates to nature and scientific inquiry through both two and three dimensions. My work is not tied to social or political issues but rather driven by curiosity to explore possibilities, how things work, and to create work that generates questions. What forces are at work within a piece? How do components move, interact, generate gesture, realize stability? These physical ideas are present for me in the making of a piece, as are the references to history through shape and form and to emotional connection. I hope similar feelings and responses are generated within my audience, allowing them to see, to question if and how these pieces resonate with them. I could wax on about interrelationships between form and the human condition or draw reference to the impact of global warming and how it affects components within the paintings, but these concepts go beyond the simplicity of my desire to make objects that speak to me and share them with others in hopes that they may also find questions or answers by viewing the work.
