About "Skyworks"
" ‘Skyworks’ is a series of sculptures with what I like to call a ‘NASA aesthetic’. Influenced in
form by the immaculate instruments of space exploration, as well as the moving rhythms of
minimalist music and modern architecture, I see the sculptures in this series as visual reminders
to always carry a ‘sense of the cosmos’ within oneself.

They're construction is a hybrid of old and new. I would not be able to create these sculptures
without the current, new technologies. Utilizing Autocad and CNC plasma cutters enables me to
realize and fabricate shapes and formulations I wouldn't have been able to twenty years ago.

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.

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."
