Driven by a preference for creating purely aesthetic and material focused works. My projects are visually inspired by twentieth century art, design and architecture. Each form I create becomes an attempt to examine new narrative functions brought about by selected wood and metal materials.
Before I begin a sculpture, I ask myself how can I utilize the physical properties of the woods and metals to guide the construction of the work. Part architectural, minimalist and constructivist. I set out to discover new ways to orient industrially produced materials.
