Transformative states, including life with its frailties and uncertainties, death, metamorphosis, regeneration and ascension are primary concerns in my sculptural work.
These explorations, organized in series, are shown indoors and outdoors. For the most part they grow spontaneously and cumulatively, rather than through preordained planning. They are inspired by nature’s cycles, embodying appreciation for life’s metamorphosis, death’s transmigration and wisdom through time’s passage. Integrating direct experience in the world, they draw from personal experiences, as well as insight gained through facilitating individuals and communities.
Materials are discovered while walking, left over from house maintenance
and found in all manner of everyday life. Indigenous and man-made elements
include roots, milkweed, stone and other natural components, interwoven
with broken glass, ceramic tile and metal mesh or wire.
