These sculptures stem from the contemporary phenomenon of living a very mobile, fast-paced lifestyle and the increasing distance between people and the physical natural world.
The work references and contrasts textures and surfaces of the earth with ‘man’-made objects encountered during the 'commute' of everyday life. Neon signs, taillights on the car ahead, maps, highway construction markers, electronic gadgetry and remote controllers weave together with the horizon, hills, rivers and rocks. I am interested in the contrast between mobility and an enduring, reverent self-defining relationship with a particular place or location upon the earth.
Each sculpture serves as a personal visual marker of contemporary life - a buoy of sorts, quietly communicating a direction, concern or caution while tethered and floating with the tide.
