My artwork originates from a combination of ideas and influences that range from nautical form and the sea to Hot Rods and American culture. Through a balance of abstraction and representation the work addresses issues of class, relationship, and journey.
Recent sculptures investigate the use of classic automobile parts and found objects contextualized in a relationship of abstract form and implied function. Through form, material implication, and association, these sculptures reveal and embrace specific aspects of middle class, blue collar, do it your-self American culture. With this work I investigate the nostalgic and the absurd through specific American iconography, intent upon a critique of culture and look at one's self.
