ARTIST STATEMENT: Artist Statement The process of exploration is just as crucial as the moment of actually making the work. I create series of assemblages made of earthy and crude materials like found wood, scrap metal, limestone, wire and found or new hardware, concerned with light, space, perspective and impression. The work exudes dedication, emotion and raw energy. For several years now I have dedicated myself to a series of wall sculptures entitled ‘The Kimono Series’(1990-2011). These are works constructed of scrap metal that is hammered, nailed down and assembled and attached to skeletons of wood. The joining of the feminine, elegant Japanese kimono and the rough materials used brings an intriguing juxtaposition to life. My ‘Suspension Series’ (1991-2011) are a postmodern ‘homage’ to the natural and industrial environment we live in. Small sculptures created from used materials are suspended inside newly constructed wooden frames with wires and industrial hooks, embracing the old by the new. My most recent work a mixed media assemblage entitled ‘Expansion Series 2011’ is a site-specific project for ‘the Healing Art Gallery’ at Ellenville Regional Hospital. I explored the concept ‘le plein et le vide’, positive and negative space within. Staying consistent in using found materials like old piano pieces, brass, wire, zinc, wood etc., a series of assemblages was created by one work flowing into the next, visualizing ‘Expansion’ within and outside the work. My work has been shown nationally and internationally including: Espace Eiffel Branly, Paris, France, Grand Palais, Paris, Cornelia Street Gallery in New York City, 450 Gallery, New York City, Atelier Zones Gallery, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec.
