My “Tree Souls” are created from the dregs of dead trees that I find on forest floors or assorted junk piles. Within these rotting pieces I find and preserve the soul of the tree. With a finished sculpture in my hands I feel the art of nature. I have taken the last vestige of a tree and preserved it for the future. When you examine my work, feel the life of the tree. These are one of a kind sculptures that not even I can reproduce. In his October 1, 2015 article in Artnet News, Ben Davis wrote that my Artprize submission for that year, "stands as a rather perfect emblem for the whole affair, whose insight seems to be that, in terms of art economy there is much value to be mined in the process of sifting through the messy parts as there is in simply celebrating the final, polished thing".
