I am interested in exploring the restructuring of time and place that reconfirms an object in the moment. I want to share my view of a world that can be continually defined and redefined. Themes include the value of integrity, of being whole and sufficient, and values in general; what we hold precious, and how these things define us.
I build on the primacy of organic, grounding structures. The foundation of current work is bison skulls. I began with the idea to honor the buffalo as an act of contrition. This was not so much a choice, but a requirement for peace of mind. My intention, my penance, is to complete one hundred buffalo skulls.
