ARTIST STATEMENT: I use patterns and systems to investigate the human tendency to see meaning where there is none. Like solving puzzles, I set arbitrary rules and follow them to their logical conclusions, marveling at how the simple application of structure lends the impression of meaning to my abstract configurations. Begun during a three-year stint in Japan, my current series "Drawings In Three Dimensions" is the outgrowth of an ongoing sketch journal in black and white. Each sculpture is based on a drawing which is, itself, based on a few abstract black marks made on a white page. These initial marks are then translated into a visual law which governs the completion of the drawing. The finished sketch is then broken apart and reconstructed as a three-dimensional object. Using a combination of ink, acrylic and enamel, I add details to hand-shaped pieces of thermoplastic and affix them to birch panels with brass hardware and adhesives. The resulting works, which only inspire names upon completion, alternate between organic shapes like those found in biological structures and geometric forms that evoke the irregular rhythm of stalactites and stalagmites. Hovering between drawing and sculpture, these wall reliefs and objets d’art often replicate a two-dimensional sketch when viewed from the front but always reveal more dimensionality when considered from other perspectives.
