About the Artist
I make wire mobiles with a unique technique where I weave around an original wax sculpture, then melt out the wax. This technique allows me to create much more complex objects than other methods in wire. My philosophy is to make a work that appeals almost purely aesthetically. For my subject matter, I choose the human form. A very recognizable shape that can be read by the viewer from any angle, essential for mobiles. I stylize the figure just to the edge of what viewers consider naturalistic. But since the piece is essentially seen only in silhouette I have to exaggerate some aspects of the form in order to appear naturalistic, I elongate the limbs, cinch the elbows and knees and carve the backbone deep. Lives and works in San Francisco, CA.
