HUMANS BEING STATEMENT
Humans Being is all about us. Human Nature - complex, diverse and mysterious serves as a
vast reference library for the content of my sculptures. In concert,
Mother Nature furnishes me with a marketplace of earthen media: gifts of wood,
metal and clay which I color with fire, smoke, time and occasionally pigments. I
integrate these ingredients with found orphaned treasures and modeled clay
figures to compose optimistic three-dimensional commentaries on everyday
issues, behaviors and relationships.
You are welcomed into the compositional space and company
of the uncostumed clay performers and props; into a place where collectivity
transcends blindness and boundary. Humans being in halted moments adopt a
feeling of otherworldliness in theatrical-like tableaux. Shadow boxes, bird
cages, assemblages and works in the round invite your participation and
arousal of your own humanness. My intent is to portray panoramically our
virtues and defects and the potentiality which dwells between and to communicate
a comprehensible universal language through a nonverbal dialect of postures and gestures.
The human body is the incomparable vehicle of my voice.
