I am an abstract sculptor dealing in space, place and form. My work
relies on formal clarity and uses variations of complementary elements such as
planes and curves. I work in stone, steel, wood, aluminum and plastics, and I use
computer-aided design where appropriate. I believe that the challenge and joys
of creation are equally related to visualization and execution. For me, working in sculpture is a compulsion
rather than a possibility. Art should not necessarily solve or interpret
problems for the public, but should provide an opportunity for us to regain the
creativity we all had as children.
My approach requires the ability to execute the entire process of
sculpture. I believe a sculptor should recognize our figurative history and the
importance of the human form. I begin a
sculpture with the traditional process of making sketches and working out the
form with maquettes. The ultimate scale is based on the idea that sculpture is
more than an object in space, becoming a place in itself.
