Alongside years of collecting mundane, retail objects, I elevate them as artistic materials. I gather most of my materials from places we all go every day. Consequentially, my palette is limited by market availability. This restriction forces me to very deliberately consider every element and permutation in the body of work.
Every sculpture evokes an unique character and presence; each presents a different personality and motive. Attention is given to color, transparency, texture and form. Scale is important. These, along with other compositional elements, combine to form a whole icon.
Many of the pieces in the show are formulaic. Some are expressionist. All are both.
I do not emulate nature, I mock her.
