My sculpture is often described as classical. For me, gesture and expression through the human figure is the most versatile and powerful means to reach an audience in an intellectual and emotive way. I strive to communicate ideas through a grammar of geometry, which when rooted in the human figurative image, is a powerful tool to provide a kinetic emotional experience for that artwork’s audience. I believe this is truly a living art form that has the power to communicate ideas and give meaning on a humanistic level.
