Investigating interactive networks between living organisms in an ecosystem led to the creation of this series of welded drawings. I built up metal reliefs with a MIG welder on thin steel sheets, and then melted out the rest.
This series includes a Public commission for the Village of Wappingers Falls, NY.
Driftwood and steel
How we undergo the natural is a reflection of ourselves.
As both sculptor and immigrant, driftwood holds an enormous appeal to me. Trees grow somewhere, then brake off or are uprooted and end up worn and changed by their voyage to a new location.
A life without boundaries, where everything is in flux and patterns are temporary, exists while we try to predict and harness the organic movements and changes that are unstoppable in the long run.
I strive to have the lines and textures in my work become organic structures that seem to be forever changing.
