ARTIST STATEMENT

 

Dichroic glass, a subtle, vibrant and ever-changing medium of light and reflections, is the unifying element in my large-scale, site-specific sculpture. It is kiln-fired and fused to a safe thickness and incorporated into works of stainless steel, aluminum and stone to create pieces that are both durable and low maintenance. The reflective surface of the glass changes color with the angle of the light and the perspective of the viewer resulting in a panorama of color which is reflected and transmitted onto the surroundings, integrating the sculpture with its environment and offering a new visual experience with each viewing. This unique characteristic provides the major theme of my work - illustrating the inevitability of change.

 

My experience includes many public art sculptures and corporate art projects over the last 26 years. I am experienced in large projects and enjoy the challenge of design and attention to detail. Site requirements and safety issues are always considered. Each sculpture is designed to relate to specifically to the function and activities of the site. The intent of each design is to intrigue the viewer and provide a timeless, vibrant and enduring piece of contemporary art.
