Over the course of my career I have frequently addressed my ideas through sculpture made in series. Each object tends to inform the next with themes lasting two or three years. I always know when a series is done because of an emotional/somatic twinge. If I don’t pay attention to that feeling, the next object is made without passion and is usually abandoned.
However, there are times when I am working in the studio where I come upon ideas that intrigue me but do not result in a long period of exploration. The objects chosen for this exhibition are the waypoints in my ongoing inquiries. The exhibition title SHIFT is eponymous with the piece depicted here and recognizes important times in the studio that dictate a “shift” in direction. These periods are amongst the most important moments that make up years of studio inquiries about form and occupation of place.
