My work is ultimately about relationships, the interactions we have with others. In a sense we interact with the part of ourselves in the world. It is this feeling that I am trying to recreate with my sculptures.
I make portraits that radiate feelings that are familiar to us. A sculpture is the shell of the artist’s desires or fantasies.
The material surrounds the force of the thoughts that are conjured up into the piece. The variety of these metaphysical energies leads the material selection in order to effectively give us a sense of what is under the surface.
In that sense I collaborate closely with the material and meticulously peel the layers to reveal the forms translate emotion and tickle the viewers’ imagination.
