My dad hoards scrap metal. There is little beauty within the useless clutter, yet it is a tolerable counter to the errant waste of consumerism. My work is a contemplation of the dichotomy of this existence. Humans are technological creatures, but can we be reconciled with the natural environment? The reuse of waste, from discarded refrigerator parts to ashes, creates awkward 'machines’. I responded to materials on an aesthetic and intellectual basis, demanding both creative awareness and technical reasoning, almost an allegory of human evolution.
So, are spirituality and logic mutually exclusive?
The work is not didactic, but speculative.
