The elements of my work exist in suspended animation. They are situated as though to freeze a moment in time in which they exist effortlessly in space. The work is constructed of sturdy, permanent materials that allow this to happen, but yet is in contradiction to the impermanent sense of the composition. The forms have boldness and exactness that are inspired by the martial arts where grace and precision are practiced until they are effortless.
