I use elements of animate and inanimate objects to lend a sense of life to my work and to maintain an industrial/manmade character. Both types of forms share a simple geometric structure. I am amazed by nature’s complex building blocks, which are imitated by man in the form of industry or engineering. It is my aim to resolve the perceived opposition between natural and manmade objects and to promote a broader understanding of form.
