My sculptures are made from post-consumer
objects using serial methods of construction.
When I see objects repeatedly discarded, I
begin accumulating them—such as hundreds of
discarded umbrellas, lost gloves and wire coat
hangers to thousands of colorful plastic bottle
caps and plastic six-pack holders. I have no
preconceived sculpture in mind when I gather
these objects rather the nature of the object
itself suggests to me form and content.
Through experimenting with the physical properties of the materials being used, structures and patterns often emerge which are similar to those basic growth systems found in nature. Meaning lies in transformation of the objects into something beyond themselves, something surprising and often amusing.
