A glyptic sculptor, specialising in the carved form, favouring full intersecting volumes that imply an interior logic or anatomy.
Formally trained as a sculptor, educator, and philosopher. A sculptor since 1978, working exclusively to commission since 1992 with work represented in both private and public collections. This practice also includes the research and publishing of non-fictional writing.
The Work: Ranging in scale from the hand held to the monumental, surfaces can vary from chiselled and flame-textured to smoothly honed, highly polished or mirror-like surfaces. Extensive drawing, the fabrication of scale models and maquettes feature in this process.
The Concept: The sculptural language of this practice is largely determined by a tense relation existing between two distinct notions, the potential of the figure as a subject to which a sculpture might refer and the sculptural potential of what might be called a self-referring figurative object.
