Facing It Together Series
My sculptures and photography incorporate surrealistic, mythological and magical imagery often with whimsical overtones — aimed at provoking our experiences and self-reflections. Aiming to unbalance our rational minds, the predominant imagery deals mostly with facial expressions of both living and “non-living” beings, and things that speak to us in their own languages. They are mixed media assemblages that have been assembled, disassembled and reassembled, becoming abstractions unto themselves.
My sculptural and photographic imagery is a reflection of my past and present forces and the imagination of my life’s stories. They represent an evolutionary process of these ideas and how all of life’s forces are interconnected, embraced and expressed through creative art forms. My works represent what I've accomplished with this art form. I call it my quantum and metaphoric moment, the changing from one form to another. They express and implement my thoughts and feelings, taking risks without any guarantee of their success….. and to be reflected in these present works, is my goal. The predominate imagery deals mostly with faces of both living and non-living beings and things. They are expressed in these many forms and images and do speak to us in their own languages.
I've been a part this creative art world since I can remember, beginning as a product designer and establishing my own design business in New York, Santa Fe and Europe.
