ARTIST STATEMENT

Working within a tradition that is several millennia old, I face the inevitable challenge of making the human form somehow relevant or original. Toward that end, I find compelling a notion advanced by art critic Donald Kuspit, who proposed that sculpture was “metaphor making in three dimensions”. My intention is to extend the figurative tradition through metaphor: to compare human form to other aspects of experience and in so doing to express metaphysical ideas of balance, tension, and temporality. Sources of inspiration can be wildly diverse, from calligraphy to modern dance, from plant forms to geology, from the efforts of other artists, ancient to contemporary.
