Artist Statement
This work consists of a physical steel form; natural steel and painted steel, natural shadow and painted shadow, light, wall, etc.

What is the true form and what is its reality? There is no one correct answer. Reality can be both imagined and real at the same time. The aspect of illusion and space are as important as the object itself, they are one. In this case light and space become line and volume, imagined and natural.

Altering the light and surroundings provides for several images from one form. Through all of this no one image is final. A semifinal stage is where my time with the work ends. The work continues its process.
