Stones and trapezoids become symbols of chance encounters that shape an abstract idea into tangible works that lay between the natural and my spiritual world. Transforming stones to bronze. Choosing to repeat the shape of the trapezoid, to see it evolve and resonate into the complexity of sameness. Seeing the possibilities that emerge while maintaining a few strict parameters. I have found that it is best to live my life the same way I make my work. By heightening my awareness to see what presents itself and adopt it as a guide and learning its patterns and rituals that become a body of work. Which creates space in time in the life I live. A measure of time, value and wealth. Finding the value in something that comes out of pure chance and choice. To pay attention to something, giving it worth and life. A philosophy that can apply to animate and inanimate forms.
