My medium is wood. I am enamored with its colors, grains and textures, and forever challenged by the sculptural possibilities of carving and/or fabrication. I also like to experiment with combinations of wood and other media; most recently acrylic.
My work is form driven and often about “SOFT” and “HARD” juxtaposed shapes. “HARD” seems to signify what is rational, controlled and active, whereas “SOFT” seems more about what is emotional, spontaneous, passive and vulnerable.
The forms that emerge have intriguing metaphorical connotations. Some reflect upon our threatened environment (as in “What We Eat”). Others suggest a disconnect from our humanity in this age of technology (as in “Morph”). Several are tributes to my parents (as in “Lenny’s Shovel”).
