Architecture and functional objects inform the vocabulary of my sculpture. Materiality and the physical gesture inspire the structures. The plywood and hardwood surfaces, laminated with wood veneers and painted with acrylic colors, are configured to reveal surprising shapes and patterns with shifts in the viewer’s perspective. A sense of disorientation, implied weightlessness and the element of surprise are created by the geometric forms and subvert the modernist vocabulary of the simple constructions.
