Artwork > Object Alchemy

My assemblage sculptures draw on the limitless capacity in objects for the poetic. These objects and the resulting discovery from my interaction with them, drive and inspire design — informed by alchemy, curiosity, language, mythos and ritual.

The sculptures range in scale from handheld to life-size. Through them I examine the transformation of meaning that occurs when disparate objects meld together and take shape in novel forms that are off-script and improvisational, imbued with gesture and presence.
