"Temple"




Temple, sculpture, 24"h


The "In the City" show (Arbor Gallery), from my statement:

I am firmly rooted in a rural way of life, and my take on 'City' is tinged with apprehension, awe, and a touch of cynicism. I appreciate the beauty that can be found there, but I am uncomfortable with some of the forces behind the pulses and the monuments of urban life.
These sculptures acknowledge the discovery of the hidden treasures within 'City', and the adulation of the flawed, decaying deity called capitalism, and the toxic marring of the Earth's surface by the industry of these seething colonies of humanity.
 They are not meant as a judgement, but as an observation of things that are quietly present while we tour 'City' seeking shiny, colourful, tasty things.

Sculpture 36" h, cedar

"Toxic Landscape"

I have used junked circuitboards to depict an industrial park. This sculpture is the first in a series featuring discarded computer parts as landscape.
