I work in a wide range of media – primarily in stone, wood or metal – finding personal empathy with the material. Working in both objective and non-objective forms I find inspiration through the beautiful abstract elements within “nature”.
The natural stone texture represents the natural world, the artificial texture represents the world man has created. The darker forms or “fingers” are the elements that are destroying our planet, and also represent the disappearing nature of time left. The sculpture also has significance for the artist. The natural texture represents the natural body we inhabit; the created texture represents our “civilized” lifestyles. The dark forms are the reminders that we are at the “Outer Edges of Time”, not only for our world but for ourselves.
