ARTWORK

“All of my work—monumental, conceptual or interactive—is designed to engage the viewer on an intellectual, visceral or emotional level. It challenges us to think. It enables us to feel. It encourages us to react. Whether figurative or abstract, these objects implore us all, as human beings, to be vigilant and involved. To recognize, in the words of Chief Seattle, that ‘Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself’.”

These works are an invitation to participate in the process of exploration and discovery. To learn as much about ourselves as the evolving world around us. To confront Despair and Anger. To embrace Senescent wisdom. To clear Our Path. To Split Infinity. To continue The Search. To find our own Reflections.”
