Sculpture

I have always worked with found objects, primarily wood (lumber), logs and pieces of metal. They are and have always been accessible and enticing. Used, broken, rusted items seem to have already begun to ferment aesthetically. Logs particularly come with an emotional and purposeful heritage.

I combine items by carving or assembling, as in carpentry or furniture. I don't always know where I am going with a piece but enjoy the process and usually the issue becomes clear. Then I can proceed consciously.

Some of my repeating themes are the human body, retained Catholocism, emotional connections, and shapes as a language themselves.
