Midden Rabbit
Found object assemblage. 27" x 24 x 7

A conglomeration or midden sculpture made up of cultural "ecofacts", screwed to a central armature of wood. I used dozens of found objects including toys, locks, bullets, watches, car parts, hardware, golf clubs, and many other odd pieces.

Enlightened Man
Transmission parts, light. 75" tall.

The Enlightened Man sculpture is made up of repurposed automobile transmission parts welded together into one contiguous life size human form. He has an interior layer of veins and arteries that can also be interpreted as a nervous system.

He looks downward and pulls open his chest to reveal an abstract heart emitting an ethereal light.

Picasso's Goat
This iconic steel goat is an homage inspired by Pablo Picasso's She Goat sculpture. It is made from both found-object and fabricated parts. It represents optimism and a love of life, hope for the future as well as being an archetypal symbol of persistence and adaptation.

The little bird on her back is me, the grateful artist, standing on the shoulders of giants.

Tree House - Architectural Symbiosis
Steel, LED. 31" tall. 2018.

The iconic steel house hovers above the ground, magically suspended by a flickering light that emanates from within, as if it is on fire. It asks the question, is the house one with nature, or is nature reclaiming humankind's creation?

Interests



This video shows the creation of two life size paintings based on TSA airport security Advanced Information Technology (AIT) body scans.  The paintings encourage dialogue of the AIT body scans currently being proposed for all US airports.  They also function as art that reflects the culture and times in which we live.  The male and female figures can be seen as an allegory of Adam and Eve, provoking the analogy between modesty and shame, security and invasion of privacy.

The paintings will be included in the exhibition Art & Democracy V, opening on May 24th at the Building Bridges Art Foundation gallery in Bergamot Station, Santa Monica, CA. Art & Democracy V is the fifth art exhibition with the theme of art and democracy; this year it is returning to Greater Los Angeles after a three-month run in New York City.

Organized by the Visual Artists Guild and curated by Diana Wong, the show focuses on work that address issues concerning social justice, immigrant rights, freedom, global climate change, democratic struggles and civil liberties.
