Dealing with issues of transience, fragility and memory, my work sits at the confluence between sculpture, architecture and drawing. Site-specific and temporal in nature, my work is a synthesis between my response to particular architectural circumstances and my ongoing sculptural concerns.
In 2008 I completed Translucent Home on the foundation of a demolished house on Sculpture Space grounds in Utica, NY. Translucent Home is part of a ten-year site-specific project that I began in 1998 when I was a resident at Sculpture Space. My third intervention on the same house site, Translucent Home embodies the idea of transformation and continuance.
Constructed of steel grid, lath and wire, my site-work Counterpoint (2010) is built in response to the Philip Johnson designed sculpture court at the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Museum of Art. An exploration of the idea of arrested and precarious motion, Counterpoint uses the museum’s logical and a rational proportions as a foil. Initially inspired by the idea of a fragmented, inverted dome, Counterpoint evolved into a large steel gesture drawing in which the parts exist within a state of becoming and unraveling.
In addition to my site-work I am creating an ongoing series of small work, drawings and photographs related to my larger pieces.
