STATEMENT

Events of the last couple of years, including the events of 9/11, the War on Iraq, and my experiences in Africa dealing with AIDS have challenged my assumptions about time. From poking fun at the treadmill of contemporary life, to the finality the death penalty imposes, to public art dealing with historic artifacts, all of my artwork deals with aspects of time. While some works contain abstract depictions of timekeepers, others depict artifacts of more ambiguous functions. Many of the larger sculptures such as "Market Fluctuations" are interactive, needing the viewer to start them in erratic motion, symbolizing the unknown repercussions of our actions. My intentions are for viewers to bring their own interpretations and to reflect on the artifacts we leave behind for future generations to ponder or trip over. My interest is in having the viewer consider the larger picture: to reflect on our impact on the environment, its impact on us and our place in time.
