Sculpture Concepts

This is a new series of ideas for monumental kinetic sculpture that I hope to make a reality in the near future.

In this series of new sculptures I have been exploring movement and the purity of the abstract form. At rest, the sculptures are elegant; they are a delicate exploration of the beauty of pure abstraction. Yet the unseen forces of nature can change that order to a series of random and unpredictable movements. Fluctuating air currents will move the elements of the sculptures in an infinite number of erratic ways that appear to defy logic, gravity and the laws of physics. They immerse the viewer as he attempts to impose logic and order to the unpredictable pattern of movement, much as we try and impose order and logic to the random nature of our lives. They reflect the human condition, which is why we relate to them.
