I am taken with shapes that lead a double life,
mechanical and figural. Many of these pieces begin with the tracings of found
objects, usually mechanical refuse, or with mechanical representations of the
human figure. The shapes chosen, and the methods and materials used, are such
that the images are construed to invite but also deny any fixed interpretation.
The pieces are variously happy or mean, innocent or knowing, benign or malignant,
smart or stupid.
