Artist Statement

My sculpture is about balance, imbalance, and exploration. My work attempts to understand the human condition through discovery of the relationships between its basic components. I gain inspiration from Da Vinci, Euclid and the great scientists who blurred the distinction between art, math and science. Incorporating mathematically significant dimensions, such as the Fibonacci sequence and the Golden Ratio, ensures a subtle equilibrium found in nature. Metallurgy and physics guide my material and design choices as I seek to communicate messages about strength, sustainability, and risk.
