Intrusion
2009
7.5'x9'x4.5'
Aluminum, Steel

Intrusion is an exploration of the interaction and energy created by pushing three large, irregular forms very close together. The composition conveys a sense of tension between the three sections. The graceful, curved lines and unbalanced, leaning forms suggest movement--perhaps a dance; perhaps a struggle. The matching curvature of the gaps between sections draws the viewer’s attention into those spaces. The middle section, differently finished from the other two, seems to be forcing its way between them, thus the title. While the sculpture might be interpreted as a social or geological intrusion, my intention was purely abstract.
