My work starts with a fascination of the body: what it is, what it can become, what it can represent. Each figure I create inevitably deals with the human condition; as one becomes a rational and spiritual being, there are challenges to face and every day lives to live. Every person has a lifetime of stories and experiences to offer and inform the next one, and we’ve never been more connected, yet more and more we find ourselves removed from each other. I’m interested in figures that express evocative thoughts, offer deep empathy, or seek reminiscence, and when removed from typical life context, explore a deep and simple vulnerability. The tactility of the figure reminds us of what it is to be human: the good and the bad, the beautiful and the grotesque. It reawakens us to question who we are and who we could become.
I've worked in the fields of architecture, ornament, public and private art. The places where all those disciplines overlap is the most exciting for me. Where are individual lives connect to each other and the world at large.
