Through a variety of materials, cast metal, welded metal, cast and sheet acrylic and wood, I have produced works that suggest human concerns, though mostly geometric and rectilinear in form. Some pieces deal with relationships between two or more forms, the tensions and the spaces. Others rely on the optical reactions and participation of the view or present intrinsic optical struggles with the internal self and the external image. Some pieces reveal interiors that are not expected, a glimpse that the external appearances are no always in the internal substance.
