Artist Statement

My sculpture represents an unspoken language developed over many years of focused creative attention. Shapes, lines and openings repeat and reinvent themselves in a progressive continuity. Within each sculpture I explore relationships of light, space, color and reflection.

Sited outdoors, a sculpture forms a relationship with its surrounding landscape and with the changing wind and light. Propelled by wind or touch, the kinetic works dance in space and time. My non-moving sculptures participate in the dance with their implied movement.

These works stimulate a closer look at the inhabited space, at relationships, balance and movement. The effect is to merge thoughts and feelings as we join into the dance.
