From the molecule to the stellar cosmos, my sculptures reflect nature’s structure and its networks. I have a lifelong fascination with collecting natural objects as a science geek, and that has influenced environmental themes in my artwork. My impulse to study fossils, flowers and seed pods is as strong as my obsession to experiment with finding meaning from them. I imagine that these surrounding objects show promise in a symbolic language for guiding our awareness. My idea is to translate this language into visual forms with materials composed of concrete, metal, stone, burlap, plaster, wood, and hardware.
Through my creative practice I seek to bridge the symbiotic link between an over-looked natural habitat and our social realm. This work that I do, to make sense of improving relationships between humanity and our occupied spaces, is my vision for creative problem-solving in sculpture.
