Where do you find the supports for your paintings and sculptures?
Each piece goes through a different construction process. Some of my armatures are made from cut steel and wood – conceived and drawn out before being constructed. This process is used when I react to a surface material that must be weighted or stretched in a specific way.
Other sculptures have been born out of the love of found objects. Parts of chairs, wine racks, back scratchers, and mop handles are collected and remade to eventually serve as an armature for the piece.
