I am a multi-media artist. My sculptures depict human expression. I think of my sculptures as vessels since we carry so many things inside ourselves: joys, sorrows, memories. These things we carry are expressed in our bodies. Over the years the emotions effect how we carry ourselves and show in wrinkled brows, sloped shoulders, and frowns, or maybe twinkling eyes.
My approach to creating is both experimental and intuitive and based on my personal life experiences. The abstracted forms explore the boundaries of human emotions and the physical boundaries set up by the world around us.
i hans build my armatures on steel or plastic pipe that can be bent and shaped. i use layering of paper to build and fill out my forms. The outer layers are painted vivid colors and are meant to engage the viewer. The sculptures represent years of layered memories, .
