About The Artwork

I started this series of wall hung sculptures during the 2020 pandemic. Because of the rapid and vast spread of COVID 19 it was obvious just how connected we all are in the world. This global situation guided me to construct a complex interwoven system of various physical elements in size, material and color joined in a multitude of points metaphorically representing the dynamics and circuitry of life. In this case I’m using thick acrylic blocks and lengths and steel wire of varying diameters. I take inspiration by the ancient Chinese Yin and Yang symbol whereby contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected and interdependent. I also delight in the Buddhist mandalas and its representation of focal energies and metaphysical wholeness. Akin to these powerful symbols I want the viewer to take a visual journey meandering in and out and around the sculpture. Building within the parameters of a rigid gridded composition much like the stepped Manhattan cityscape viewed outside my Brooklyn studio window I’m focused on the sensitivity of proportion, weight and the necessity of balance. The sculptures hang straight by one central fixed point nail. The ancient Greek philosopher Parmenides stated ‘nothing comes from nothing’. With this in mind I derive compositional inspiration from my forefathers and foremothers of art history namely the artists and architects of the Bauhaus and De Stijl movements. In keeping with the liveliness and complexity of form my color palette respectfully references the bold and vivid palette of the Fauvist painters.
