2012 ArtPrize Entry

After a career of capturing photo and video images, it occurred to me one day that all the time I was producing realistic images I was also absorbing 'mental snap-shots' of bits and pieces of shapes, patterns, contrasts, colors, locations, movements, sounds, and most of all, feelings. I didn't realize what was going on in any logical sort of way, but somehow I always felt it. Now, I often find myself setting aside my cameras and grabbing paints, canvas... or most recently, wire. I enjoy representations- things that make me think about something without actually seeing it in a totally realistic form. I find that in abstract paintings, and especially in wire. "Wired" is a full-sized sculpture, and will be shown at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum.
