At the heart of it, I’m a storyteller. I try to capture a certain emotional state within a physical narrative. As many artists, I’m a translator of sorts. Sculptures emerge through me from a realm of study, awareness and symbiosis between myself and the clay.
Though my work is influenced from a diverse pool of inspiration; such as nature and the human form, I explore ways to surface and texture my sculptures within the confines of preserving a sense of balance and fluidity within abstract/contemporary forms. As a result, the work manifests a certain primitive elegance.
Clay, itself, is an incredibly powerful material. It absorbs. It remembers. It has its own set of rules and characteristics...just as every person does. It is the flesh of the Earth and working with it calls for a certain act of devotion. Though most importantly, clay has always felt like a natural extension of myself. It’s bold, yet subtle nature allows me to express my narratives with a certain understanding and ease.
