" Having lived in the mountains of Western North
Carolina for many years now, I draw from the power
and majesty of the mountains, the wonderful, star-filled
skies at night and a sense that one is connected, in
some way, to this vast, mysterious universe we live in.
My current sculpture series, that I call 'Skyworks',
stems from this experience. They are an expression of
the exploration of both inner and outer space.
Their construction follows patterns and geometries I
don’t rationalize beforehand. I work intuitively and
emotively, and yet, at the same time I’m attempting to
eliminate any trace of what I would call ‘sentimentality’,
and express a more objective state of mind."
