ARTIST STATEMENT: 

My recent sculptures are made with the idea that a positive dialog with the outdoor surroundings is established. My sculpture is made of fabricated powder coated aluminum are of an unnatural and inorganic material but have the integrity of a thing grown rather than assembled.

Growth is the prime symbol. Curved metal like elegant curves of clothlike forms echo this theme transforming the material. Sculpture in the landscape, like a way finder for the human sprit, is meant to enrich and stimulate imagination in a positive way. The subsequent style of these works are meant to stimulate feelings for the past, the present and the future.

The idea that a sculpture can make a place important until that place makes the
sculpture important coincides with the idea that a sculpture creates its environment as much as the environment creates the sculpture. This is the important dialog I am aiming for in my sculpture.
