The Industrial form, as I put forth, is a medium that attempts to convey strength and power while also relating a sense of mystery and transcendence. In my work, I utilize re-purposed pipe-fittings to create a perception of energy-flow, structure, interconnectedness, and synchrony. Informed and driven by a purposeful search for meaning, my philosophy centers around the core belief that art can holistically transform and change human beings both intrinsically and collectively.
