Statement

Neural Fire during the sandblasting stages.

My current work involves taking small inspirations, such as neurological elements, and expanding them millions, if not billions of times larger to where they become an immersive experience for the viewer. The use of glass within my work exploits the innate fragility that is associated with the material, creating an environment of tension and intensity that introduces a visceral sense of life into the material, transcending the visual impact of the composition. Combined with complex and organic forms, my work embodies my internal obsession with drama and precision. I frequently find myself consumed by the act of making; impulsively acting, immersing myself in the process and becoming obsessed with details that others might never consider.

My goal is to create forms that have a sense of movement, life, and are accessible enough to allow the viewer to create their own associations while still preserving my original inspiration. The compositions I craft invoke conversations of growth and expansion, representing my personal evolution as a creative individual. The passion that empowers me to spend sleepless nights in the studio delivers a high degree of craftsmanship and exceptionally resolved work. Throughout my process, I strive to visually communicate the complexity in the natural world through intricate lines, dense intensity and the inherent intrigue and tension within the chaos.
