Artist Statement

It seems to me that the one underlying concept which remains consistent within my work is an on-going interest in a “kind of territory that exists between things”. Common materials such as concrete and plywood have served as my medium to structure the work in various scale and context, to elicit architectural references and subtle organic complexities. I feel as if I am continually looking for a sense of order and logic within abstracted, fragmented, geometrical forms of a minimalist nature. How these forms, surfaces, and space connect to larger orders within our world and our experiences, alludes to and suggests feelings of time, spirituality, and relationships between man and nature. Within this territory (this location) is where identities of sculpture, painting, and architecture merge, and qualities that are both unique to each, and shared by all, becomes that which intrigues me, and that which inspires me.
