I collaborate with architects, planners, galleries, museums, designers & developers to create large scale, unique sculptural forms and experiences for public, private and corporate spaces. Whether the work is large scale, or a smaller more intimate piece, my work is about placemaking, creating work that responds to the space around it, creates delight or engages consciousness, and informs imaginations.
Whether it’s a personal place, corporate, communal, institutional, I see art as a means of engagement to provoke thought, dialogue, introspection and conversation. It becomes part of the fabric of our life. Some articles on my work have made it sound like the renderings I’m doing are the art, but in actuality, the designs I’m doing are meant to be built. I’ve partnered with some of the worlds best fabrication teams to fabricate and install them. they can be installed anywhere in the world. The renderings are created in models with consideration for how they would be fabricated, engineered, installed and the ultimate goal of these renderings is creating permanent pieces. All of these are available for purchase, exhibition & commission. I can be hired for custom collaborations. Contact me for more information.
The Fall of the Republic
An installation where audio is projected into the space from the sculptural objects. An audio loop of trained stage actors reading presidential tweets from the Trump Whitehouse plays over ambient background music. The loop plays audio of twitter 'chirps' before each tweet as well as response tweets read in different voices. The voices contrast intentionally in tone with the content of each tweet.
Babelfish. Conversations without Walls
This piece is for an installation on two sides of borders with walls. In each location a door shaped screen is installed that has what I call Babelfish or 'live' language translation allowing people that speak different languages to have conversations as though no wall existed, both physically, as well as from a language barrier perspective. Of course people speaking the same language can use these doors to talk as well.
They can be installed in actual border walls - or in nearby locations such as museums or other institutions that decide to partner in the work, that are located in countries or areas separated by a border wall. Part of the outcome of this installation would be a documentary where we can witness some of the conversations and interactions that take place in real time in these settings. These events and the conversations that ensue are part of the ongoing dialogue of this piece.
The Language of Spheres
Exploring how forms inhabiting a shared human space can be used as language. Shapes within shapes, material and painted surfaces can easily become signs, signals and waypoints that direct us physically, intellectually or internally toward undiscovered parts of ourselves, as well as undiscovered ways in which we relate to the world around us.
Riveted Aluminum Series
This series is inspired by the surface on airstreams. I fell in love with the surface, and the rivets, as well as some of the elements like the doors, latches, hatches and windows. I explore abstract forms with a similar surface. The other surface elements become metaphorical in this context. Initial ideas for this series include a teardrop shape, a form with tendril legs, and a banana. Ideally a series of different shapes and forms would be made for one space, where they could co-exist and communicate with each other.
This concept involves large tufted waves of material 'woven' over a structured under-framework. These pieces will have a fashion / high touch feel that I can see being commissioned for a fashion brand.
The imaginary life of forms captured as still lives. Objects of the everyday experience combine with forms born in the imagination to create form poems. The pieces shown here are what I consider material or object sketches, They're models for pieces that will eventually be cast in bronze with a matte black finish. These are currently available as commissioned pieces, contact me if you're interested in commissioning one.
Further experimentation with ideas and forms.
