ARTIST STATEMENT My sculptures have always been object-oriented and narrative in nature. The interpretation of my work may or may not be exactly the same as the intended narrative. More important, the viewer should be able to feel a connection based on their own personal experiences. I attempt to achieve this connection with my audience by utilizing universal visual details. The mechanical and architectural details utilized in my work have evolved into a personal language. These details and symbols combine with the overall form to create the visual esthetic. Because of my formal approach to fabrication, rational functionality might be expected. On the contrary, the combination of scale, references and details often results in an absurd reality.
