My work is comprised of salvaged material sourced locally. Every bit and piece that I collect in my journeys throughout Connecticut has a story to tell. From a flywheel out of a Chevy truck to a piece of rebar that once held a sidewalk together. There is something unique to each individual piece used in my work. I highlight the rust, peeling paint, gouges and other defects in the material that have been acquired by years of service to society. My aim as a sculptor is to showcase not only the material being used but the story behind it. The majority of the work is untitled as not to skew the viewer's opinion on the work.
My work is dedicated to my friends and family that have supported my artistic pursuits.
