My work relates to the changing mental, spiritual, and emotional landscapes that we traverse in life. Spaces are defined to convey a particular realm of existence, quest, gesture, moment in time, or saga, reflecting the dichotomies of life: order/chaos, refinement/rawness, the primal/the intellect, tranquility/turbulence. Pieces are often cut from one flat sheet of metal, torched, and then the sculpture pulled out into a 3D work. This process produces a fluid quality, which transforms the metal’s natural rigidity. Most works represent passages through hardships or transitions. However, in some series such as the Arcs/Restrung Bows, Citadel Triad, and the String Band series, the calmness and harmony achieved after these difficult transits are expressed. Color in my work is brought about by torching or oxidizing/weathering the materials, particularly copper and steel. Thus in a very literal fashion, I also ‘paint’ with fire and water.
