Statement

ave been involved in creating, artistically and otherwise, since my childhood. My work in wire mesh is a result of over twenty years of fascination with a material I discovered quite by accident, searching for a medium that I could best express myself with. Working with leftover scraps of material at a blacksmith shop I was employed in, I gradually came to know the incredible expressive power of a medium most people, artists included, had never even heard of. Thus began a refinement and synthesis of all my experiences designing, fixing, and tinkering with things. I also called upon years of studying the human form through life drawing and carving in wood and clay, as I learned the skills necessary to work with a material that is at once supple as clay, demanding and hard as steel, yet finite and woven, literally a fabric of wire.

These playful experiments eventually led me to my first exhibition, in 1989. If the sculptures don't exactly speak for themselves, they do not require much in the way of explanation. They share my fascination with the human form, and the human history of image-making in and around that form. Occasionally the sculptures have a story to tell: The Icon. A visual pun. An excuse for an obscure literary or musical reference. A new interpretation of greek mythology.Yet the wire mesh itself is a material with no foreseeable limits as an artistic medium. My figurative work represents one narrow avenue of expression within a vast potential territory, which can include geometrical pieces, architectural installations, furnishings, two-dimensional work, and kinetic sculpture.
