Keys to the Greenhouse

A Brief Description of themes addressed in the work. 

My recent body of work includes a series of figurative and man/machine morphologies. The intention is to develop a hybrid of mythologies superimposed upon my own experiences. The sculptures encourage viewers to consider anthropomorphological tendencies from multiple view points.   

This combination of the utilitarian machine with organic elements   sets up a dynamic allegory of shifting meanings.

There are many opportunities to deplete and reinvest the function and processes of each component or tool, to reify or deify the objects using architectural devices of scale and materiality.
