Bio/Artist Statement

I am fascinated by the confluence of plane and curve which I see as representing Man
versus Nature. Looking at our world, nature comes in points and curves. Gravity pulls
fluids towards the flat, but seen up close they are rarely without ripple. It is humankind
who, through technology, imposes much of the flat onto nature’s roundness but nature
will attempt to restore the balance. Walls and patios buckle under the push of roots. Our
lives are a constant, and useless, attempt to keep nature under control. My forms try to
express that contradiction.
