Resembling a relic from a forgotten culture, “Canopic Jar” is from my series “Artifacts from a Former World.” The title for the piece comes from the similarity of its shape to the canopic jars found in ancient Egyptian tombs. It is made of acid-stained cement and bronze leaf.

STATEMENT

My work, both figurative and abstract, arises from my subconscious combined with memory and a spontaneous interaction with a variety of materials. The sculptures have been described as elegant and evocative, yet also earthy and powerful and are imbued with a mythic, numinous, and archetypal awareness that comes directly from my process of creation. My ultimate goal is to have the viewer feel a sense of familiarity with the work...a sense of knowing, of understanding.
