The Story of Othello: Othello heralds from Madagascar, a magician who can make illness disappear. Not to be confused with a sorcerer, which is black magic. Othello is all good. The driftwood in his third eye and on the cleft of his chin represents his connection to nature. His eyes are closed so that he can view all layers of existence simultaneously. The white on his eyelids and down the center of his chin represents a perfect balance between Yin and Yang. Gazing upon him is like basking in contagious serenity. Othello is the older brother to Fortuna, who brought him into the circus world where she worked as a fortune teller. Five years ago she had fallen ill and needed her shamanic brother to pluck her from death’s threshold. After doing just that, he was ready to return to Africa. Then he met Mabel, the lion tamer, and decided to stick around… --- Othello is a contemporary figurative sculpture of a shamanic magic man, comprised of aqua resin and duo matrix resin with driftwood as an accent.

Creating art allows me to indulge in intense intimacy while exploring my independent ideas and ideals. I’m fascinated with the chemistry of humankind and nature, with a particular affinity for metal (or metallic) and wood, approaching a subject with the aged patina intact. Being a self-taught artist, I can’t hide behind technique. I strive to be an honest and emotional storyteller, albeit naive. The intimacy of my sculptural portraits derives from the fact that they are unapologetically flawed. The avalanche of texture does not attempt to hide inconsistencies, but rather a wabi-sabi tribute— seeing the beauty in the imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. The portrait is both model and message— a statement of belonging and intention made visible. Whether it is man, animal or mythological creature, the viewer is engaged in cross cultural dialogue. Art is where all paths converge, and improbable connection made possible.
