My work reflects my obsession with antiquity and the passage of time; through it I explore tradition, myth, and belief. Spanning the gamut from the pharaonic funeral masks of unknowable space gods to the tactile remains of pre-Christian deities, my sculptures are the relics of fantastical civilizations and lost tribes.
I have developed two distinct approaches to sculpting. My one-of-a-kind works are assembled from found objects, scraps of metal and cloth, epoxy putty, bone, leather, and anatomical models. My reproducible works are much more time intensive.
I have begun to explore a variety casting techniques to breathe new life into my older pieces. I believe the weight and physical qualities of bronze and marble lend verisimilitude to my work through the inference of great age and classical origins.
