Artist Statement

My sculpture examines Minimalist ideals of industrial material and commercial colour as well as popular subject matter. Although Minimalism explored the nature of the art object through industrial process and use of new materials it also invented a new vocabulary of aesthetics. This vocabulary cites a means for me to juxtapose certain visual and practical elements such as material, scale, symmetry, situ, colour and function and using them to augment a selection of contemporary objects.
