My evolving obsession; the ideas that sustain my creative process.
The rhythms and patterns present in cellular functions, the various ecological systems on earth, and the birth and death of stars are all kindred. I am interested in understanding the operation of the various systems within and beyond the world, and am fascinated with exploring the recursive relationship of these systems; the architectural framework that is consistent among all of them.
The presence of this "framework" is no coincidence. I am constantly looking for ways to articulate and understand this “recursiveness” artfully. Through sculpture, I explore and express these systems in ways that related to my interest in the physical and rhythmic structure of things.
Light is the reconciling force of the universe; the trace of all events since the beginning of time. It contains the answers to everything including our origins and is among the absolute essential components of our universe: the fundamental “materials” of life. Ephemeral and fleeting, light is a conduit to details only under the correct circumstances, much like looking into the eyes of a person and feeling an intrinsic understanding when the souls collide.
According to American theoretical physicist Richard Feynman, in order to learn about and appreciate the universe, “...it is necessary to understand the language that she speaks in.” I believe that rhythm is the "mother tongue" of the universe. My works are projections of rhythm, movement, space, and time. They explore the intersecting area where tangible materials meet and interact with light; the relationship between physical presence and phenomenal essence. The fourth dimension.Guided by passion and motivated by time: I live life on my own terms for the people I love. I am VIKING.
