In my work, I attempt to visually qualify various aspects of myself. I do so within the guise of non-threatening architectural settings and functional objects such as walls, windows, doors, chairs, tables and stairwells. These personality constructs, often with the addition of wave forms, take on a stage like quality;  like a set waiting for actors to appear.  One may suddenly realize that the actors are in fact at hand and the performance is already in progress.  The materials in my sculpture, aluminum, bronze, glass, stone, and neon, create types of visual dynamics which enhance  this enigma.  They are at one time sympathetic and stressful upon one another; hard and soft, opaque but transparent, open yet veiled.

Though my chairs convey the illusion of simplicity they are in fact sophisticated, spatial systems oriented toward a process of visual reasoning based upon light, simplicity, proportion, discipline and craftsmanship.  They are visual metaphors of the human condition.  In “Fade” the chairs appear to be simple until the viewer perceives the symbiotic relationship between the constructs and their shadows.
