2012 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

My sculptures are fragments of a conversation with Nature. The dialogue can be hostile, soothing, or both. Storms, trees, and the sea personify heightened emotion, wisdom, and awareness. Reflecting on my own vivid experiences with Nature, I realize that imagination plays a powerful role, transforming observations into unique, dream-like forms. This process guides experimentation with synthetic materials. As I find unlikely relationships between memories and materials, metaphors open and expand this dialogue.

Venue & Connection Information

The piece hangs from the ceiling by fishing line (FireLine microfiber weave). Individual sections are ~8' x 2', weighing approximately 3lbs. each, with up to 80 sections hung from various points. The composition can be elongated, clustered, or separated into several groups. It adapts easily to many spaces. Gallery lighting is ideal, with white walls to catch shadows. I have some supplemental lighting available.
