My sculpture consists of hyper-realistic representations of uncanny and often surreal
subject matter that is psychologically unnerving, organic, and anatomical, while
simultaneously being both repellent and magnetic. The result of this is a body of work that
is totemic of the anxiety’s that are often present in the human sub-conscious.
The work I produce appeals to the instinctual fascination with the imperfect and the
malformed, often combining traditional standards of elegance and beauty with a child’s
raw and unbiased curiosity. Through the process of fastidiously modeling every detail of
anatomical forms and handcrafting mechanical and decorative componentry from various
media, I form an intimacy with my work that is then transmitted to the viewer.
When in pursuit of an understanding of what we find appealing and why, one may arrive at
a sort of objectivity through which beauty and revelation can be found in the least likely
places. As such, I approach my work as scientific exploration in which each experiment
leads to the next in an ongoing examination of the human condition.
