ARTIST STATEMENT

I have had experience in creating a number of medium to large scale projects. Each sculpture is a. response to, and is intrinsically bound to its specific surroundings.

More than with other media, brick objects are associated with function by all of us. Its cultural heritage is unequivocal. I find it, therefor an intriguing material with which to execute art. If those assumptions are subverted, the sculptural brick object has the ability to be used metaphorically for itself, rather than merely to convey a purely narrative message that happens to be fashioned in that material.
