ARTIST STATEMENT AND BIOGRAPHY
"I'm interested in the seen, the unseen, and the diverse ways humankind has tried to explain reality. The crossroads of the abstract and the concrete can be inspiring, ominous, and obscure and are often moving targets. Through varying degrees of abstraction, my pieces include gridded structures, math and scientific equations, and metaphysical or problems to reflect these themes.
About the math:
Occasionally the equations specifically relate to a piece, but generally they don't. I tend to choose ones that were born of the quest to understand the most basic components of matter and energy. Most often, I use a jumble of randomly unrelated equations because the randomness is a spectacularly accurate description of reality. I have no math or science background and I did my best to avoid them in college. Many years later, I became interested, largely because of the scientific landscape of New Mexico."
Initially, I specialized in metalsmithing, using traditional silversmithing techniques in bi-shell sculptural forms. My work was represented by Artwear in NYC; Concepts Gallery in Carmel, CA; Graham Gallery in La Jolla, CA; and Carol Huberman Gallery in Birmingham, MI. After several years of producing sculpture and jewelry, I began working in two-dimensional media, more recently developing my current painting themes.
