ARTIST STATEMENT: I look for a hidden life in synthetic materials. My work often involves repurposing common industrial products to style organic forms. Based on repetitive, self-similar processes that occur in living environments, my sculptures are a tribute to nature’s many wonders. My rustic upbringing has a strong influence on the way I perceive the world, even when immersed in hyper-urban settings; I tend to seek out the organic potential of man-made objects and places. Viewers of my work can visit my nostalgic renderings of nature but they’re also welcome to journey to wherever the piece takes them. Distant homelands, real or imaginary landscapes, visions of the future—many different settings are possible.
