Abstract

I am drawn to tools, their applications, and the way things work. The action and process of manipulating and transforming material to create formal visual statements is vital to my sculpture. I utilize and respond to material and process, allowing for the work to develop through its creation. Relationships of form and space interest me. Not only do I find beauty in material, it also exists in the tension and the power of a space within or between forms. These interactions in my work help formulate the visual language through which the metaphor is present. I hope to capture and express a sensibility to which one can relate.

This thesis will further discuss the manner in which I make sculpture. It will be a compliment to the artwork and an attempt to put to words the conceptual basis for the forms I create and the spaces they compose.
