American Flag, 2007. Matches, wood, paint, 36" x 60" x 4".
The next revolution will be a revolution of ideas,
not of physical states. Problems are not political,
environmental, or economic, they are existential.
I want my work to take away the power of negativity,
to introduce impermanence to old ways,
and to find deeper truths and connections
between all things. Sculpture is more than a
three-dimensional art: it interacts with time, consciousness,
and essence. The physical world is an
experience of the inner levels of consciousness.
By manipulating the physical, I intend to send a
ripple through the conscious levels of humanity
to induce positive change.
