Inspiration comes where nature’s inorganic form meets the organic. In my sculpture, both often depict human emotion, human condition. Rocks, shells, waves suggest human form, fluidity, texture, tone. Botanicals are sensuous, yearning; sea forms are muscled or fleshy.
So, my work in sculpture has grown around what I see in nature. Organic form often resembles human form and reflects almost human emotion. Rock and cloud formations, ocean waves, for example, often can be seen to have human shape, motion, texture, and tone. Flowers can be sensuous and trees can be peopled. Stems of flowers, such as orchids or lilies, can stand tall, appear happy or courageous and proud, while other stems can be viney or wilted and appear sad or defeated. Branches and roots of trees can show human intensities or “body language,” such as reaching and yearning and entanglement very similar to the ways in which the exterior anatomy and musculature of the human body reflect its deepest feelings and emotion.
