Purple Gallinule (2016)

I weld nature's creatures in mild and stainless steel to enhance our connection to and our understanding of the grand forces of nature and the movement and growth so inherent for our imaginations to flourish and reach out towards our dreams. Over the last 40 years, I have constructed interior and exterior sculptures of wildlife. Employing steel rods, I render unique and intricate patterns of realistic animation with a strength of spirit and an intensity of aliveness. My sculpture is an announcement, a reminder and a heralding of our natural heritage. This is a poignant, crucial time in the light of extinction. There are basic philosophical questions encompassing the juncture of life and death, beauty and harmony, of not only our endangered species but also of our own fragile selves.
