Moab ArTTrails Co-Founder

 

The object of my work is to create beauty. The high desert where I live is renowned for its introspective peace and majestic beauty; my work is directed by and reflects the resonance of my surroundings. The mostly abstract forms I create are less about recreating what I see than expressing the emotional interaction between all my senses and the world around me. My focus is bent on the sub-corporeal forces that lie just beneath the surface of form. Forces that are felt rather than seen, such as balance, growth, the pull of gravity and sub-atomic whirlings that are constantly at play in seemingly inanimate objects. The pulse of life beats through everything and I look for the ephemeral movement of life in raw materials that epitomize solidity, mine my subconscious for the fleeting perception of those subtle energies and try to put them into lasting forms that I can see, caress and share.
