I make small to large scale wall sculptures of representational to abstract works that span the mediums of traditional painting to bas relief sculptures. These wall sculptures entail the use of chromatic grounds and materials to actual painting of materials which construct the composition into a bas relief. These wall sculptures are made entirely of found and discarded objects from many origins in which my search takes me.The forms of the composition are dictated by the materials in which I have gathered or had been given. These materials convey a feeling to me of either a relation to a mechanical or natural idea. It is through texture and line that directs my thoughts to form a composition.
My goal is to create works that stop observers in their tracks and question what it is that they are looking at or what it is made of. People often are compelled to feel my sculptures as these compositions consist of intricate and very textural pieces that as a whole form a unified texture and feeling.
The paintings that I compose range across multiple genres which relates to the work in which I express my feelings that I have come to experience through my upbringing, travels and situations of extremes in my military career. I use texture in these paintings to span the mediums of sculpture and painting that in most cases cannot imply the texture and the feeling of that texture without a mixed media within the paint or carved into that painting.
