About The Artist
After teaching myself about the science behind metalworking, I became obsessed with the manipulation of raw material.
My technique of choice has always been hand fabrication. It was during experimentation with cement that I came to discover and appreciate the material as one of unexpected beauty. My use of cement implies strength and durability, even if the material is broken.
I draw my inspiration from New York City. Architecture, concrete, Steel, and people – the whole of the city influences and motivates me to create what I’m passionate about. Pushing the boundaries of metalwork while experimenting with raw materials, I look for contrasts, full shapes and empty contours. I like the simple abstractions of shapes.
I am mesmerized by the fact that a material such as metal can change so drastically from smooth and industrial in appearance to an intriguing organic form that bears no resemblance to the original material. It is as if an object not only assumes a second life but reveals its true identity. The beauty of the form which emerges when metal is manipulated is one that fascinates me.
My attitude towards life is decidedly non-conformist, and so is my art.
