Metal is best suited for my work because of its strength, malleability and inherent beauty. I combine geometric and organic elements to create compositions that convey the implied energy found in my work. I use the abstract manipulation of form and shape in space to create visual balance, using rhythm, action and movement. The implied energy of my compositional; structures has become a hallmark of my work and is a metaphor for an evolutionary process that I associate with human experience. Through the creative process a hierarchy of elements become symbols for ideas that are a tribute to the evolutionary experience we all share in common on the human plane and in the transcendent experiences inherent in life’s journey.” Dimensions: 12’ x 4’ x 4’ Medium: Painted Steel Price: $25,000
