Artist Statement

Principally concerned with abstract figuration in his work, the pursuit and capture of a momentary gesture in a static object continues to be an animating and potent challenge. This is informed by the artist’s explorations of body morphologies, industrial and architectural composition, classical notions of representation of the figure, and a view of the body and its possibilities as landscape.

A frequent motif in his design ecology is the inclusion of industrial shapes and fittings. Blending these elements with free form fabrication has widened the opportunities in my formal language, creating a nexus between the artist’s academic and trade backgrounds.
