Artist Statement:
I make geometric objects. They are as rigorously made as possible, but, because I'm only human, I fail to make them perfectly, and that is what I find interesting. The world of mathematics is pristine, neutral, and indifferent. In contrast, I make mistakes, turn things inside out or sideways, and then force them to look like something else. These objects, while sometimes humorous, contrast the ideal and the real (and maybe that's where the joke is). I try to do most of the work by hand because I don't want to play into commercial mass production. I think this is pretty important in a world where, clothes, furniture and virtually everything is throwaway. At least when someone sees my work they know a person made it purposely and with care. I am commenting on and participating in Minimalism, but (hopefully) in a post-modern way. That is, knowingly trafficking in old ideas, but trying to say something new and inclusive with them. Historically Minimalism gets a bad rap because it doesn't concern itself with the conflicts of daily life, but I think there is room for this bull in it's very tasteful china shop.
