About the "Industrial" series
Our aesthetic is shaped by our perception. We're surrounded by sculpture; some formal, some not so. The finest is inherently art.
I tend to see the world three dimensionally: shapes, form, composition, and structure. Function is an inherent determinant of an object's form and composition.
This body of work explores the use of standard construction materials in sculpture -- isolating their functional interrelationships and arranging them in a dynamic of pure form and structure. This begs application of these materials somewhat consistent with the interactive relationships for which they had been engineered. I maintain the visual integrity of these functional relationships resulting in an inherent visual vocabulary and a natural fluidity of form.
My eyes and my mind seek out forms that are unique or unnoticed. I identify the essence of these forms and elevate this essence to a purely sculptural plane. It's an invitation to the viewer to take different notice of the world, and better appreciate that world sculpturally and environmentally.
