There is endless potential in assemblage and the creative process of inventing sculptures based on traditional fabrication methods. My sculptures are derived from a stockpile of found objects and raw materials that I have collected for decades. This selective inventory reflects my interest in natural phenomena, industry and the effects of human intervention. Objects and parts consist of new materials and those with a previous history that evidence personal failures, insights and brief moments of clarity. The finished constructions are the result of improvised and carefully considered strategies that become embedded in the visual language of the sculptures.
