I use metal as an artistic medium, and for engaging in body-centered research.
I find it crucial to vary how I activate my body and my senses when making art and other objects. This allows my entire human nature to participate: a prerequisite for wellness.
I primarily work in iron and bronze, sometimes combined with other materials. The focus and physical presence needed to work metal allows me to challenge the constant human drive to achieve comfort, a sedentary lifestyle, and the atrophy that follows.
This working process also relates to the concepts I explore: Fragmentation and reconciliation within the self and between people. I, for example, find beauty in the balance between ideal shapes and flawed, fragmented, parts.
