I have found inspiration by the way sculpture changes over time. I have been fascinated by the Archeological find to uncover something that has never been seen. My work develops from the Archeological discovery and the work ethic from ancient times.

TECHNIQUE

I have always looked at materials as a representation of a place in time. This idea

about materials comes directly from the way I have learned to organize history. I place

stone in the far past or in ancient times , I look at metal and consider it to be now and I put

glass or plastic as future materials. I look at sculpture as a place in time with all the

materials linked to a specific time. I have found a new material and I may never figure

out when woods time period is. Wood could be something bigger it might be a kind of

calendar of the world’s history or just linked to time its self. Untreated wood shows us in

its core, sapwood, and its heartwood and what has happened at a time and a place. In its

linage it shows us the world scars and misfortune. The wood also shows us the good time

when the weather and times were perfect. I think wood as more than just a material and

after I have finished my piece, it will change over time. At this time my thoughts about

sculpture started to change drastically, this is the time I started to think about sculpture as

something that may not be around forever I will work on the natural and nature will finish

the work. I have always found inspiration by the way sculpture moves or changes over

time. I have always been fascinated by the Archeological find to uncover something that

has never been seen in modern times or forgotten until discovered . My work develops

from geology, the Archeological discovery and the work ethic from ancient times. I have

found myself thinking instead of the future finds; I am looking at the past. I think of my

new work as art to artifact, at one time everyone only had one of everything (maybe a cup

or a chair a couple of tools at a place in time) and they took great pride of how these

positions looked and took some of those objects to the afterlife with them and now in our

time we have been digging them up, History could be changed when an artifact is found

someplace new or out of the ordinary. My fascination with my art starts with a line

between the man made and the natural. I have been using the sawdust as a metaphor. The

saw dust is a man made object, but at some time it turns to natural, and this is something I

think we all should be aware of the line between the man made and the natural.
