shapes derived from nature: bones, bugs, birds, tuberous roots, crustations. Through intensive drawing from nature I cultivate and rearrange these organic shapes, to create new structures. These invented building blocks, derived from the organic world, are combined in my sculpture to create a personal language of form.
This vocabulary runs throughout my entire body of work, despite the diversity of some of my images. From larger figures that exhibit elaborate and abstracted drapery, to my fossil fragments, this lexicon of invented biomorphic forms remains fundamental.
