Found Object Construction:
My sculptures are built intuitively using weathered materials. Some of these pieces are made with specific content in mind, but most are simply combinations of individual, decayed objects that combine to evoke memories of specific places in the landscape, presenting nature without denying the intrusions of humanity.
I’m fascinated by the movement of leaves blowing in the breeze, curls of fire in prairie grass, and changes that occur over time. This is artwork that takes place outdoors, existing for just a few moments or developing over many years. Objects that are removed from the site become artifacts of the place while the landscape continues to evolve. The collaboration with natural forces results in ever-changing artwork that lives on by itself with my manipulation as an element in its composition.
