I am interested in transforming the inherent static inertness of industrial elements into a radiant sensual energy. Using industrial materials in whimsical, playful, and sometimes irreverent ways I reshape the utilitarian view of industry into a more jocular and erotic meditation. In my work, industrial materials such as nuts, bolts, screws, hex nuts, steel bars, etc. blossom into a larger realm of fantasy. Through repetition in organic configurations they become more intimate extensions of ourselves.
