My current sculptures are fictitious interpretations of man’s relationship to machines and our industrial heritage. These industry-inspired sculptures explore our long reliance on machines and factories, but also the cultural impact of industrialization.
I pay homage to all types of machines and industrial implements. In certain sculptures I bring attention to their usefulness, ingenuity and the people who bring them to life and operate them to their fullest potential. In other pieces I explore the downside of our industrialization and the impact it has had on our environment. All the work is imbedded with rich surfaces of paint and patina that explore the inevitable passage of time.
Through my abstraction comes a playfulness and somewhat absurd idea that real-world machines (and their sculptural counterparts) have child-like qualities; evoking ideas of playfulness, the desire to explore the world, and the joy of just having fun being themselves
