Artist Statement

Sculpture is a dedication, not a career – this primordial necessity, this gene of creativity has shaped and motivated my life for the last 50 some years. I am fascinated by the paradoxical nature of the relationship between the natural and industrial world. My subconscious has a predilection for natural phenomena – geological formations, ice patterns, fossils  and degradation; the random forms of nature where no lines are straight and where sensory information comes from imperfections.

Through the casting process I have continually attempted to replicate nature while combining modern technology as a creative contrast – mixing brass and aluminum “one off” castings with lathe shavings, laser cuttings,railroad ties or agricultural and automotive materials to establish what I believe is a distinctive and very personal three dimensional language.

The sensory beauty of primitive natural materials – to transform them in original ways, has been my basic reason for existing and continues, even at 75!!, to provide a fascinating artistic challenge.
