natural rock sculpture


My art is about subtraction. My medium is natural rock that I find at urban construction sites. I focus my artistic practice on both the exterior and the interior of the rock.

In this process I make marks on the rock with a variety of industrial tools, which leave an index of my activity.

My primary concern is to interact with the hard natural rock and create a sense of visual movement.

The rock is the site of my sculpture. I use subtraction to achieve a balance between solid and void.
