I have always had an interest in Science particularly astronomy. The idea that the whole universe was created from a tiny atom and at this very moment expanding is hard to imagine. I’m baffled that only one of the nine planets in our solar systems has the ability to sustain life. Does this mean artwork only exists on planet Earth?
My artwork stems from the belief that one should never stop learning and progressing. All my artworks are experiments that lead to more experiments. This is how I create artwork. It’s within a consistent workflow that new ideas are born. The finished pieces are humble attempts to see how far and to what level I can further these art experiments.
I used to consider myself a drawer. I thought I would only make drawings in the two dimensional sense for the rest of my life. Luckily I have proved myself wrong and I have never been so happy to be wrong before. Sculpture for me is a possibility for unknown to surface. Like looking though a pair of binoculars or tuning a guitar both need to be focused or tuned to achieve clearness and tone. It is within this unknown that I believe the most intuitive and interesting work can be created. When the three dimensionality of sculpture is applieyed it heightens the reality of my drawing.
I consider my sculptures a mix between upsurd street signs, monuments created from my subconscious, and relics from different dimensions. I’m attracted to bold bright colors. My color choice is derived from the energy from which it was created. One of my goals is to make an artwork more accessible to a wider audience outside the confines of the art world. By using the same objects that the public uses hopefully a connection is established. To reach the widest audience, to have an idea understood beyond the usual audience of contemporary art is the history I want to build upon and create for myself.
