Artist Statement

I build architectural skeletons from discarded objects. The elements in the structures swirl about a center and lean forward. Typically, the materials I use have been cast out by society, for example: demolished barns, broken bicycles and downed trees. I transform these objects into dynamic pieces and connect them into recognizable shapes, for example: waves, tornadoes, and pillars of fire. My work is site specific, taking advantage of the surrounding landscape and architecture. I place the sculpture for the maximum effect of discovery and scale.
