My work evolves from the stiff, rigid, industrial I-beam, an icon of the 20th century, typically used in the construction of vast bridges and towering skyscrapers. As a sculptor I search to understand the truth to the materials and strive to discover ways to stretch and manipulate that truth bringing forth its potential in new ways. I have discovered the breath within the beams, an understanding of how the structural nature of the material frees itself of it’s industrial function, allowing the material to blossom, intertwine and gesture towards the sky, as a symbol and celebration of both human nature and Mother Nature within the industrial beams.
Large outdoor sculpture. This is work that is part of permanent collections throughout the state of NC and SC and exhibited up and down the east coast.
