Artist Statement

 

Like an archeological dig, objects below the surface ultimately reveal
themselves – oftentimes crude and unfamiliar in appearance.
Shapes emerge and perish almost simultaneously within their
environment, and their admission does not come easy.

What remains from this conflict are unsettled
and irreducible forms that have fought for their existence.
In an ongoing exploration for greater meaning and understanding,
this tearing down of the figure, is when I begin to see truth.
