Sculpture

Statement

My artwork is based upon perceived chaos and how that chaos is contained within an object.  I am interested in randomness and layering of units in my wall pieces and the lack of orientation in works that sit on the floor or hang with swiveled wire.  Inspired by music, this work reflects the shading, tempo, and interweaving of sounds.  Inspired by our dynamic planet, the shape, color, pattern, piling, stacking, and tangling in the pieces reflect what we see when looking at earth forms.  Viewing shape and pattern through each other, as a representation of aural and visual complexity, reveals ever-changing relationships.
