I see myself as an artistic engineer. Over the years, I have worked as a metal fabricator, boat builder, designer, cabinet/furniture maker and carpenter. All along, I knew that my diverse experience in these various trades were only augmenting my abilities as an artist and broadening my skills as a sculptor.
I create kinetic devices that interact with their environments. I call this environmentally reactive sculpture. My goal is to have the environment impact and activate each sculpture. In turn, the sculpture’s activation and movement changes or interacts with the environment creating a dialogue between the environment and the artwork.
At its heart, my work is based around the idea of change or the effect of change. Through my work, I explore how to define, see, sense, control or not control change. Because I’m dealing with ideas or principles of change, time and time mechanisms are intrinsically interconnected with what I am exploring in my work.
