Artist's Statement:

I make drawings. Ink on paper is a good starting point for mark making on a plane, but drawing in three-dimensional space requires new materials and a new visual vocabulary. My pieces begin with the most familiar flat surfaces, the wall and the floor. On these planes I draw, dig into, and build out of into space with a range of traditional fine art materials to the industrial. (e.g. sheetrock, lumber, pipe, glass, and rubber). Light and shadow act as mediators between the physical forms I make and the images I create.

Working with these materials I try to create tension between geometric constructions and free form gestural marks. Shifting planes in space act as different perspectives. Real shadows cross paths with false shadows painted to move against the grain of natural light. Whether I use geometry to structure fluidity, or fluidity to liberate the constraints of geometric forms is a question that can be interpreted by the viewer.

Form Study

As part of the studio foundation curriculum, Form Study introduces students to a variety of

materials, tools, processes, and critique techniques for sculpture and three-dimensional design.

Assignments focus on scale, volume, form, material language, processes, conceptual practice and installations. Students strengthen their physical and conceptual perceptions of three-dimensional art and are informed through lectures, field trips, critiques and hands on demonstrations.
