Abstract: "I find that there is little difference between the worlds of reality and fantasy. I place myself in a position to be inspired by both. I also inquire into the possible permutations of an existing form, and perhaps the creation of a new one. My goal is to create sculpture that calls this difference into question. I do this through; a conflation of found and formed, recognizable and uncanny, metaphor and actuality. The result is odd, idiosyncratic, ulterior composites derived from commonplace detritus."--Abstract from author supplied metadata.
