Artists Statement


In my work I use steel and wood as the material to examine issues of contemporary life. I inject this work with social and political narratives that is expressed in my choice of subject within a specific context. One example of this is a human rights issue on abolishing capital punishment. The human figure is expressed in a way that most directly informs the viewer about the subject. Describing the issue of state execution, I constructed a genuine electric chair with a burned and mutilated man sitting upright.
My work parallels the sculptures of Edward Kienholz in its expression of suffering, pain and isolation. My current work reveals the harsher realities of life, the darker less exposed side of our human existence.
