Inspired by Carl Andre’s practice of working with unmodified existing materials, I fabricate wall mounted and free standing wood sculptures with readily available maple blocks.
I’ve been exploring the idea of intersection and tension created by interacting forms. I build the forms up with cubes. The repetition emphasizes the fabricated nature of the pieces. I paint the interior of the pieces, using complementary colors in gloss enamel. The opposing colors heighten the tension, emphasize the interior spaces, and the glossy, mechanical look contrasts with the natural wood surfaces.
My recent turn to freestanding pieces allows the viewer to see through them, emphasizing the positive/negative space, further dramatizing the painted interior surfaces.
