Artist’s Statement

My sculpture represents an unspoken language developed over many years of focused creative attention. Shapes, lines and openings repeat and reinvent themselves in a progressive continuity. Within each sculpture I explore relationships of light, space, color and reflection.

Sited outdoors, a sculpture forms a relationship with its surrounding landscape and with the changing wind and light. Propelled by wind or touch, the kinetic works dance in space and time. My non-moving sculptures participate in the dance with their implied movement.

These works stimulate a closer look at the inhabited space, at relationships, balance and movement. The effect is to merge thoughts and feelings as we join into the dance.

Materials & Process

My sculptures are made of aluminum, welded, and then painted with an automotive finish. The movement mechanisms use stainless steel ball bearings, and all other fittings are of stainless steel. This makes for a sturdy structure and a long-lasting finish.
