My sculpture is based on a formal vocabulary of geometric shapes arranged in ordered configurations that contain the right sense of balance. Within these arrangements, the size, proportion, and material or color of each of the elements combine to form three-dimensional structures that force one to respond to them as purely sculptural ideas conveying concepts of weight, tension, space, and gravity. These sculptures are not concerned with external subject matter and have no metaphor. Their subject matter, rather, is their geometry. They are concerned with the harmony created by these relationships and are an attempt to create beauty in formal structures.
