Artist Comments

The main focus of my work is equality in our society; equal rights portrayed through large-scale sculpture. I find that the juxtaposition of my material choices express my personal definition of strength and equivalence. I challenge the intrinsic properties of metals and form them into unique harmonious compositions that exemplify coexistence.

My sculptures deal specifically with metal fabrication. In my research, I seek to connect contrasting metal forms, shapes and colors to create a nexus between the sculpture and the fundamental principle, that all people are different yet all are equal. The amalgamation of disparate metals within each sculpture is designed to place emphasis on the strength and endurance needed to form and maintain a unified and equitable society. In my current work, I utilize aluminum, steel, bronze, and stainless steel in combination to create balance and harmony out of diversity.
