Canadian Sculptures' Society

Artist Statement
Music is rhythmically arranged sounds.
Dance is rhythmically arranged moves.
Poetry is rhythmically arranged words.
Sculpture is rhythmically arranged shapes.

Human's innate ability to respond to the rhythm audible or visual is a language of communication.

One can faithfully repeat visual material of life, I like composing new rhythmic arrangements.

I analytically investigate raw material of object, distill, condense and transform and express it in harmony of primitive geometric shapes.
