Figurative Sculptures

A significant amount of my artwork has included the human figure in one form or another. My work has included life-size figures, portions of figures, and installations using mannequins. Life-size figures appeal to me for the presence they create in a room. We are "programmed" (psychologically if not biologically) to relate to the human form in certain ways. When a viewer encounters a figurative sculpture he brings a certain familiarity which, at least for a moment, allows him to feel a likeness to the sculpture. The viewer also feels his difference, of course, and from this contradiction he must draw some meaning. Since much of my work is oriented toward psychological and interpersonal issues, the human form is a natural choice.

The underlying concepts of my sculptures often guide my choices of materials. When possible, I select materials and construction techniques that reinforce the underlying concept of the piece.
