This piece was created because I promised a small local gallery owner that I would work on a design for a ‘small works show’ (usually pieces not larger than 12” in any direction). But I got way behind due to a number of family items & covid concerns etc. and therefore didn’t have the time to make & cut all the individual custom pieces that normally go into one of my sculptures. My son, who was cleaning out his room handed me an Infinite Tree from Johannes Molin that I had given him years ago which he no longer wanted. As I looked at it, I suddenly become aware of the fact that all the pieces were small and made of natural wood, and each varied slightly in size - - so I chose to dismantle the pieces and selectively used 33 of them, repurposed to design & create my ‘small works’ piece from them. Because I got the late start, and became so enthralled and consumed by the work as it evolved (which is usually my ‘mode of operation’) I completely missed the show, but in the end, am so very pleased with the final result. The work has only recently gone on my website, but has garnish quite a bit of attention, and has become my new favorite. This small works piece also became the catalyst for a whole 5 piece 'small works' series called 'small but mighty' with the last piece just being completed in May of 2022!

I see life in shapes and forms, angles and perspectives – always have and I’m sure I always will. My work accentuated by lighting & shadows is contemporary and abstract; yet my sculptures and art come from my soul and are created with a deep sense of humanity and warmth which many viewers have shared with me when they see my creations in person. The work is dynamic and engaging, and shifts depending on the lighting and on one’s point of view, personal background and life experiences. I hope that it can encourage a conversation among viewers that allows for an exchange of differing perspectives, both literally and figuratively. My designs are an esoteric response to the world I see daily, and my need to reflect that in both an orderly and disorderly art form, which often helps me to deal with both the beauty and senselessness I see in today’s world; in some way they are my “hope for humanity”.More About Artist
