Musicality, Metaphor, & Metonymy (sculptures)

These sculptures have grown out of images of Hopi Kachinas, medieval images of green men, misericords, and other carvings in wood and stone from the 11th to 15th century.

The artwork I create is a coming to terms with being human and a faith that there is something bigger than this temporal world that we are all leaning into.  In addition, developing out of seventeen years of being a part of and leading “shadow work,” I'll admit that with a wry smile the art aims in part to create a portrait of the psycho-social identity of the 21st century. 

The use of assemblage in the work represents the amalgamation of events, genetics, relationships and life that create who we are. Just as these figures are made out of this object or this piece of history, so we are a manifestation of moments in time, our loves and pains, this location, and the narrative we locate ourselves within.
