Artist Statement: Channeling the primal urge to create: I have had the innate drive and ability to work creatively with my hands for as long as I can remember. Imagine the “work” expressing a microscopic universe. A place where chaos and energy coalesce to form a recognizable structure: where the animating energy of creativity interfaces and merges to become physical. This physical shape also expresses the energy and decay of life. Comprehending this realm with imagination is the source of my inspiration and basis of my creative journey. To depict the transformation of movement towards light Background: Graduating college in pre-med, provided a sound foundation in the physical structures of his subjects. After graduation, the interest to continue to medical school was overpowered by a realization of creativity and the need to work with his hands. This lead to a creative pursuit in ornamental metalwork and blacksmithing. These new skills and a love of the natural world resulted in welded animal sculptures. Sculptured metal animals developed, some lifesize, some meticulously alive, some commissioned for zoos and public institutions and much were sold through galleries. The style was awakening to awards and grants. In 1996 a search for artistic gratification, lead to a move from rural northern Michigan to the D.U.M.B.O. section of Brooklyn, New York City. Surrounded by hundred of artists and influences, in particular a Jungian (Carl G Jung) art group that encouraged exploration of meaning and experimentation of new subject matter and materials. Profoundly influenced by the death of his mother in 2001 his style changed radically upon his return to Michigan to address the question of death. A series of stark black and white paintings which explored his experience and feelings resulted. Returning to a knowledge of sculpture and the biological world, his work is imaginative and expresses a world of creativity.
