Sculpture: Enamel, Wood on Wood.
Ronin is a mixed media wall sculpture. Constructed from repurposed cherry hardwood, mahogany and MDF and finished with enamel and semi-gloss lacquer.
I try to create work that transcends time. Meaning that I like my pieces to feel as though they could be from the past or the future. I love to combine retro color palettes and forms with modern, almost space age looking shapes. This combined with the use of organic materials such as mahogany or reclaimed cherry, stop the piece from feeling cold or detached.
Ronin can be interpreted in different ways depending on the viewer and what they bring to the piece with their interpretation. Some say Ronin looks African or tribal in form. Others have said it seems American Indian in feel. I have also been told it resembles a samurai helmet. While I was constructing it, I felt the lines and the color palette took on a very Art Deco feel. With most of my abstract work, the piece takes on it's own meaning and life, depending on what the viewer sees in it.
