Artist Statement

 

In regard to the botanical sculpture . . .

 

We have purpose to cull from our lives.

 

I create botanical sculpture because I enjoy it and I believe it's important work.  While the exploratory process of mimicking nature is a tedious pursuit, my object studies have symbolic meaning as well.  The graceful old oak tree does not exist without first the mighty acorn.  Form, texture and color of a recognizable acorn interest me; so does the poetry of  the stages of fruit.

 

Botanical objects are commonly presented in multiple packs and packets.  They become totemic when out-sized for presentation.

 

I design my sculpture so that it occupies specific space with purpose and meaning.  Its force in size is meant to suggest possibility.
