I’m drawn towards both nature and technology. This dichotomy inspires my art to model shapes found in nature – curves, edges, and sharp corners. My works over the past several years have been increasing in size and impact. My current focus is on large-scale swirl structures constructed from heavy wood beams. These works expand on themes from my work over the past several years around implying dynamic movement through static wood armature.
