About My Work
My work has always been abstract, although not always non-objective; I continue to feel that mimesis of the natural world should have a specific purpose to the image rather than the reason for the image. Regardless of medium, I tend to work in series, because I have found that as I make decisions regarding a piece there are always alternate decisions that are just as interesting. Each piece generates a half dozen others.
Usually I do not work from drawings or maquettes; however, most three-dimensional series have an accompanying two dimensional series. I begin from a vague notion that this part should go with that part and will look sort of like this, but I’m never certain until I have done it.
A series created while I was a Artist in Resident in Ponte Vedra, Florida. It is an homage to David Smith's "Voltri" series.
The first exhibition of the Elegy series was for the "Faculty Exhibits" at Lamar University in 2004.
