I strive to capture the primitive beauty within familiar forms, to interpret their underlying architecture and their place in time and space, and construct a bridge between those simple icons and complex ideas. Inspired by the geometry that is inherent within the chaos of nature, and the technology and industry which mimic them; I create archetypal structures, which are at once static and dynamic, organic and industrial, intricate yet tranquil.

My hope is that the simple intricacies of my abstracted, purified forms and assemblages will invoke recognition and impart the wonder that I feel for nature. That I use industrial materials and methods to create enduring artworks that appear organic, delicate and ephemeral is an embedded irony when considering the effects of man's technological and industrial development upon nature and our environment.

In essence, I restructure nature to show it to people anew; creating a mythos of forms that are born of nature and forged in the fires of industry, technology and human desire. To that effect, the most organic of my sculptures are industrial, and the most engineered of my pieces reflect a primitive, natural calm. Nature cannot be considered without acknowledging humanity’s effects, and my artwork is a fusion of the harmony and disharmony, the beauty and tension of that relationship.
