Artist Statement

As an architect and artist, I have always been conscious of the symbiotic relationship between the two disciplines. I entered the architecture profession at the transition to the digital age, but I quickly learned that the modern design process had been upended by technology. Computers became the primary design tool and layers of abstraction were added to the design process, increasing the separation between how we design architecture and make art. Sensing this growing divide, I was compelled to make things with my hands that were architectural while consciously denying the impact of computers and conformance to the contemporary design process. My work is the product of the now archaic modern design process applied to the making of contemporary art. It is an exploration of the symbiosis between art and architecture and the tension between technology and handcraft.

 

Haiku Series

At its essence, Japanese haiku expresses much and suggests so much more in just three lines and 17 syllables. These diminutive wall sculptures, in three dimensions and as few pieces as possible, are a distillation of the ideas explored in the monumental architectural wall sculptures that have become my signature. These "sculptural haiku" are a further exploration of the symbiosis between art and architecture but using a reduced and simplified vocabulary. In the absence of color, scale or context, they express the universal concepts of proportion and balance using the interplay of light and shadow amongst a restrained composition of forms.
