Red Bastion I
2014

Aluminum

The Bastion Series of sculptures are an evolution of my Rampart Series. They are interpretations of the perfection and chaos of land formations, and in particular mountain ranges. The geometry and motion of many land formations are both simple and complex and at the intersection of those two ideas is the realm in which the Bastions reside. In a macro sense, mountains are simple gestures; curves, buckles, folds… When looked at on a more micro scale they reveal an infinite variety of chaotic forms. These simple forms that cast complex shadows interpret and mimic that energy.
