Through my sculptures I convey my feelings about life and art. it is far easier for me to express my emotions through sculpture than through words. I potray the inner life of each image I create to capture the passion and sensuality of my subject. In the way, my work speaks to the viewer, evoking both an emotional and an intellectual response.
My early hyper-realistic sculptures invite the audience to contemplate the intriguing dichotomy of realty in life an art. While my work in metal is inspired by the idealized forms of ancient civilizations, my trompe-l’oeil works, figures are portrayed as fragmented reality. Although only a portion of the body is presented, extensive detailing makes each fiqure come to life. In contrast, the classical subjects of my work in metal are realized through a technique I developed for dripping and pouring molten materials that I call Painting with Fire.
Throughout my artistic career, my style has undergone many transformations, but my passion for art and my love of creating art endure.
