VEIL, stainless steel pipe and mesh, 11’ x 16’ x 12’

As an artist, I set out to alter the traditional notions of fiber and metalwork and promote them to the realm of contemporary sculpture. I exploit the accepted language of craft and the industrial language of metalwork employing conventional techniques that yield unconventional imagery and forms. My works question the established hierarchy of materials and techniques and reveal a different history — a new tradition so to speak. My sculptures are an aesthetic marriage of materials, techniques, ideas and associations that ultimately act as instruments for provoking thought.
