 Revelators I-VII  (2013) Sculptural installation

 Artist Statement

I work primarily with installation and sculpture and my work is concerned with the phenomena of light, movement, perception and space, revealing the artificial ecosystem that exists in the interplay of these elements. Rarely static, they exist in a perpetual state of transformation. I use commonplace items and attempt to maintain the integrity of these materials  while the viewer is allowed to experience them in a new and often surprising way.
