I work thematically and predominantly in unique bronze castings ranging in scale from gallery works to corporate, public and site-specific commissions.
A new voice spoke to me over 20 years ago with my move from New York to Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It was the land and the River. It spoke a language I had never known, but spoke a secret language to my heart. The contemplation of the expressive figure gave way to the perception and experience of life in a glorious landscape and a hand-touch away from the River. It said this is home.
Throughout every season this landscape of rolling hills, lush woods, multi-hued broad pastures and the slowly flowing Delaware River is breathtaking. Touch the River that carved through the landscape, and you are once joined to its opposite shore. Plunge into the silence of the woods and you are filled with enchantment, the canopy a cathedral. The woods are a sanctuary, a shelter. Its branches are arms, embracing us; its crown of leaves enveloping like hands.
Here we bear witness to the natural cycle of renewal and rest. Landscapes and waterscapes, houses and abodes provide places where we can rest and dream. Working directly from nature I explore a synthesis of abstraction and realism. Sculpture brings the primacy of touch into our world of computer and television screens.
