Artist Statement:

Having spent a lifetime creating solid forms that inhabit space but that don’t express time, I started investigating the possibility of expressing time and rhythm as if it were music. At first I dissected the human form with flowing cuts and then decided to take a quantum leap into pure expression by employing line in 3D with hand cut steel achieving the staccato, the beat, and the metronomic progression of time in interpenetrated forms.

They almost dissolve as they march to a different drumbeat. They are visionary and almost prophetic and you can see the future through them. Its almost as if your own shadow is entangled in their creation. These skyline drawings suck me in, and are an absolute delight to create and they express my current state of mind perfectly. I feel that these pieces are the beginning of a new and exciting phase of my oeuvre.
