My sculpture tells stories that are human, relatable, and strive to leave some trace on the viewer through communicating an emotional narrative. My work stems from a lifetime spent exploring the human form. This provides for my fascination with it as subject and for my interest in the psyche within it. Frequently my sculpture depicts my enchantment with our form and the results of my examination of human nature, a pursuit, which often leaves me cold. This inner conflict is manifested through my use of the figure to articulate an investigation and at times, a reproaching of human behavior. Though I regularly address and underscore the trespasses of humanity against itself, its neighbors and environment, I am repeatedly drawn to depict its individual resiliency and strength. Ultimately, my pursuit of exploring and portraying the emotions elicited by strife and oppression come from an urge to impress upon the viewer the experiences of the oppressed and to draw from them empathy for such. The duality of my feelings about humanity are mirrored in my treatment of the form. Just as I strive to imbue figures with narratives and emotions that may be difficult to confront, I equally strive to make the rendering of the figure visually stimulating and even alluring. This creates the effect of simultaneous attraction and repulsion, which causes mixed emotions within the viewer. My wish is for the viewer to be confronted with and experience this conflict, as it is this conflict that allows me to indelibly affect them.
