I believe in the ability of abstract forms to convey unconscious psychological content. I intuitively manipulate wood, paint, canvas, and cloth to create structures that have a forceful physical presence and exist as decisively in the world as human beings. I am attracted to forms that combine approximations of geometric structure with rough, degraded textures, harsh colors, and allusions to the human body, such as carved wooden teeth and sewn canvas skin. The results explore dichotomies of violence and sensuality, of attraction and repulsion.
