sunrise-sunset' is one of the two most shown & talked about pieces in this series of work; and due to its’ attention & my appreciation, inspired me to make another piece using similar shapes, on a much larger scale that eventually became my work called ‘PARIS sun’. Sunrise-sunset was the first individual piece to be juried selected for a small group show of very talented artists in Los Angeles, and holds a special place in my heart. Part of a series of 9 monochromatic pieces called the 'shade & shadows' series, made for my first public show in San Francisco, the series explores the use of geometric shapes in mostly abstract designs that were specifically created with lighting in mind, casting intriguing & varied layers of shadows. The series was also created with the idea of using rough wood pieces (not highly refined, sanded or finished) to make up each individual work, and to read as ‘rough wood’ when viewed up-close, but to look much more refined and finished from afar, or at a standard viewing distance. The series evolved as each piece was designed and moved in ways that I had never imagined. (Note: shipping is an estimate, & depends on details; arrangements to be mutually agreed upon)

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
