ARTIST STATEMENT

“Color is my day-long obsession, joy, and torment.”   - Claude Monet

“Colors are forces, radiant energies that affect us positively or negatively, whether we are aware of it or not.”   - Johannes Itten

Since graduation from the College for

Creative Studies in 2006, three

themes have emerged in my more

recent work:


1. An exploration of color enabled by dimensional form, 2. An absolute fascination with the land art of the 1970s,

    and

3. The role of process and chance in the creation of  

    visual complexity.


This website illustrates these three “creative imperatives” in the form of new glass sculptures created during the last two-three years.


Check out especially the new 12 Cubes on Mars” (above), the “Cut Cube” Series and  “Archeological Series” (right).   “Blue Cut Cube - Winter” was featured on the cover of the April 2014 Art and Antiques Magazine -- see web reference below:


http://www.artandantiquesmag.com/2014/04/glass-artists/.


“Red Cut Cube - Autumn”, shown opposite is the latest creation in the “Four Seasons Series”


“Artifact No.2, Dover:  Flint and Chalk”, and “Ancient One”  are just to the right here.  Click on these pictures to see more of this newest series.  Both these new series can be seen under the “Series” tab.


Also, Look for me at my One Man Show April 23 at the Univerrsity of Michigan - Dearborn, April 23, Stamelous Gallery.
