“To say that the convergence of art, design and technology has exposed us to a rich, new source of inspiration, is a grossly limiting understatement. The influence from it has re-energized a powerful exploratory curiosity in material purposes, properties and alternative uses. This is what I believe stimulates true breakthrough inventive creativity.
Almost child like, I am fascinated by the rich vibrant visual effects that light, volume, form and texture create. I started experimenting with various materials such as glass, acrylics and even laser cut hardened corrugated cardboard. The material that gave me the most attitude and consequently the greatest inspiration was stainless steel fabric, mesh and wire. Light reacts unpredictably when it’s traveling through the stainless steel fabric forms and rich textures. This is what initiates the vivid, gravity defying volumes we can see, touch and view 360 degrees.
My two constant creative objectives are to first experiment with a material to discover it’s personality and artistic properties. Secondly, to fashion these new creative insights to produce art that will re-awaken the child curiosity in the viewer. Sculpted forms and textures are geometrically orchestrated to re-act to light and ambient motion as it transforms into a tangible holographic like feature. You instantly know when this happens because the person viewing the art tends to sway back and forth to fully experience the unique layered optical effects.”
