Abstract: This thesis consists of a selected group of sculptures, most of which are done in polyester resin. A11 of the sculptures do have their own light source. The work is the culmination of a close study of form. My sculpture has gone through a steady transition over a period of several years. I began with a group of incoherent works about six years ago. Shortly thereafter, I became obsessed with the study of bones and organic form. My work has reflected this interest over the past five years. Initially, these forms were identifiable as bone representations. Gradually, this evolved into a more abstract style but still retained the organic forms found in bones. The use of plastics and light is a fairly new idea that encompasses the past couple years. Previously, I worked in cast metals. As my style began to develop and mature, I felt a need to pursue different techniques and materials. I had a strong desire to try some newer materials available to the artist. I found myself comfortable with plastics, particularly polyester resin. I was able to use new materials but retain my forms. Form is the most important aspect of my sculpture.
