L’ ASSEMBLAGE ART
My sculptures are a personal expression of visual shapes that catch my attention. My goal is to render those shapes into living creatures and to create a record of my impression of how unrelated objects can become something out of “nothing.”
The artistic process I employ relies heavily on how random shapes in smaller metal objects I observe form larger complex mental images and challenge me to “bring them to life.” Recurring “critters” in my sculptures include Owls, Armadillos, Chaparrals, Hawks, Eagles, Fish, and Rabbits. Occasionally something simply organic, like a flower, will evolve, just for fun.
My artwork is deeply engaging for me, reflecting a sense of contentment with my status as an outdoor Texan, respect for our environment and the creatures that occupy the land.
