What am I thinking about?????

Ceramic sculpture and portraiture, in particular, are forms of a visual narration that I use to satisfy my urge for documenting what I see in human nature. Evocative of well-loved toys and obsolete artifacts, I use the implied history of these objects to encourage the viewer to disconnect from the present situation and conjure their own individual narratives from my sculptures.

Working with concepts that are personal and sometimes narcissistic perceptions of the gloomy side of life, dark humor is my buffer. Dry or irreverent, it is humor that mystifies the tragic.

WCF Courier SUR.REALITIES

Earlier this summer I went back to Iowa to visit family and install an exhibition at the Waterloo Center for the Arts. The show is titled Sur. Realities. A short article was written about it in the Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier
