Sculptures that bring together the kinetic energy of cable, the brilliance of sandcast glass and form molded concrete.
Display notes: Well suited to three season outdoor display.
The base or plinth of a sculpture often plays a supporting role (literally ) in the overall look of the piece. In this series the plinth considers new poses and relationships with the rest of the sculpture.
Display notes: Sold as a series. Suitable for three seasons outdoors. Requires a plinth or platform of some sort for display.
Inspired by the ancient art of Japanese flower arranging, this series reflects the challenges of being with nature in our people-dominated world. Abstract floral designs bring together natural elements, construction materials (the ubiquitous glass, steel and cement) and discarded objects.
Most of the time, it is a given that we have a purpose or an agenda related to something or someone. Maybe it is to do "good work",achieve some goal or fulfill a role. It is a way to give structure and meaning to our day to day lives.
When that relevance wanes or falls apart, crisis and confusion can ensue. Who are we and what do we matter? This set of sculptures plays with the notion of "irrelevance" and how we find new meaning in reinvention and in acceptance.
The Beauty of Irrelevance: the Mid-Century Modern Series.
Recently when cleaning out my childhood home, I came across the furniture that I used to play on as a child. Now largely broken and water stained, its elegant design and construction still speaks to me. This series is an effort to reclaim its beauty and meaning - in a word, "relevance" - in a new form.
