I am interested in transforming the inherent static inertness of industrial elements into a radiant sensual energy. Using industrial materials in whimsical and sometimes irreverent ways I want to reshape the utilitarian view of industry into a more jocular and playful meditation. In this way industrial materials such as nuts, bolts, screws, hex nuts, steel bars, resins, etc. blossom into a larger realm of fantasy. They become more intimate extensions of ourselves.
