ARTIST STATEMENT

An avid collector and traveler as long as I have been making art, my sculpture has always been colored by my fascination with the object and interior spaces. Intriguing to me is a sculpture’s relationship to the wall where it’s hung, the viewer and the gallery space. My pieces are often hung well above the viewers head, wrapping around or placed within corners, or jutting out from or above doorways rather than the “traditional” spot at eye level or on a pedestal. This placement poses questions about the function of a piece of art within a space. Often referencing artifacts and architectural prototypes from various cultures and eras, my pieces appear to serve a purpose other than art—although the purpose of the eccentric, abraded tool, appliance or architectural detail is not as obvious as the fire alarm, security sensor, duct, heating unit soffit or molding that occupies a similar spot in an interior.
