The Bond©

This historical bronze statue represents the bond between two countries, America and France, and three men: George Washington, Marquis de Lafayette, and Benjamin Franklin.

Split Infinity©

SPLIT INFINITY is the physical manifestation of Einstein’s theory of time and space continuum. But more than celebrating its own liberation from the pull of gravity and inertia, it challenges each of us to pull ourselves upward – through space and time, and whatever challenges we may face – to explore the unknown.

In The East©

I was commissioned by the Masonic Museum and Library in Philadelphia to create a 17′ bronze likeness of Benjamin Franklin. The Masonic Museum and Library has great curators and historians and since I wanted more than just a statue of Benjamin Franklin we investigated his history.

The Walk©

THE WALK was posthumously dedicated on what would have been the 79th birthday of architect, city planner and real-estate developer, Franklin West, and echoes the need for a balance of all those things we need in life: past, present, and future.

The Walk©

We can learn from the balance between the past, present and future.

Frank West (1932-2005) always looked to the past with respect. Changes he made to a building always considered their impact upon the present and the future while keeping traditions alive.

Utter Despair©

It is sometimes said, in the making of a piece of art, that technique alone is able to capture the essence of an object. It is not difficult to see this truth, in the case of UTTER DESPAIR, in the roughness of the modeling and expressiveness of form.

Yellow Dog©

Dedicated to the steel workers past and present, the Yellow Dog sculpture was developed through the collaborative efforts of Jim West Sculptor and the at-risk youth at George Junior Republic.

Push©

This sculpture speaks to the struggle within the at-risk youth at George Junior Republic, and many youth thoughout the world, experience. This project was life-changing for me.

FEATURED ARTWORK

Quarantine 2020©

Quarantine. What is it? Physical, mental, abstract. Or all of these? This is what we experienced worldwide, across our fragile globe. A feeling of Quarantine, 2020.

Judgment©

Judgment can be intimidating. Immerse yourself within the curved and symphonic narrative. Experience seven sets of hollow and piercing eyes abstractly rendered within bronze heads and strategically positioned to enhance the narrative. Much like the way any judgment plays out, a deafening interim to a sometimes stunning climax.

The Altar©

Industrialism was originally conceived to revere and honor the generations of Americans who helped shape the Industrial Revolution. These objects and the altar itself now stand as a metaphor for survival. They are symbolic of our current social condition.

Can We Talk©

In our country’s current climate of violence and lack of communication, this shocking installation begs the viewer to feel and to think. We can and must find common ground on the issues of gun violence and gun rights; let’s talk about it before it’s too late.

Despair and Anger©

Both literal and conceptual, this raw and intense 50-second multi-sensory journey through light, sound, and the spoken word invites the viewer to experience two very distinct emotions. DESPAIR AND ANGER is the object, the subject and the consequence of engaging with this visceral installation.

Utterance©

UTTERANCE is a symbolic sculpture, using illumination and volume control, about how we, as humans, need to quiet the noise around us, and listen, really listen, to the messages that are being broadcasted. Only then can we truly hear and be heard.

Our Path©

OUR PATH, a monumental outdoor sculpture delicately laced with intricate water-jet carvings, speaks to our relationship with the planet we inhabit and how our footprint impacts the Earth we leave behind.

2.C©

2.C incorporates straight and curved lines in front of a sphere to represent how light and time bend. A third line takes the shape of a spinal cord, which is symbolic of our humanity. 2.C moves and changes over time, as do our own perspectives.

Of One©

Who is supporting who? From one view she supports him, from the other view he supports her. Symbiotic and reciprocal, each supports the other.

No Recess Please©

This sculpture depicts the death of a child while on a playground. The swing hangs empty and lifeless from a steel beam supporting a small-scale replica of an actual library, which was built in the memory of this child.

Utter Despair©

It is sometimes said, in the making of a piece of art, that technique alone is able to capture the essence of an object. It is not difficult to see this truth, in the case of UTTER DESPAIR, in the roughness of the modeling and expressiveness of form.

Reflections of Me©

Originally exhibited at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, in support of breast reconstruction awareness, this mixed-media figurative sculpture reflects the true spirit and resilience of breast cancer survivors.

Yellow Dog©

YELLOW DOG was developed through the collaborative efforts of Jim West and the at-risk youth at George Junior Republic. The sculpture depicts both the silence and the rise of the steel workers collective voice as they sought and fought for equity during the great Homestead Strike of 1892.

Push©

This sculpture speaks to the struggle that at-risk youth throughout the world experience.
