SCULPTURE

In my sculpture, I’ve created a series of found object constructions whose themes originate from the Old Testament, Yoga and the Amusement Park. Inspired by Rube Goldberg and the work of numerous outsider artists, spirituality and humor are aspects of these assemblages. Using discarded finds from our world, I weave and integrate Biblical verse from an ancient time to connect us with the Divinity in those legends.

PAINTINGS

In my paintings a stage is set with its cast of characters. Whether one views various fish, toys, dogs or seahorses, each object takes on its own persona. Using a painterly approach with collage at times I orchestrate these iconic actors which are used to create my vision of reality.

WOOD CUT-OUTS

As with my painting and sculpture the spirit of the circus sideshow and amusement park are ever present in these pieces. In the wood cut-outs, I needed to free the images from the confines of the rectangle in order to focus on the play between the two-dimensional colored shapes. My electric jigsaw became a powerful drawing tool as it cut away non-essential elements and left the skeletal structure for me to paint on.
