Artist Statement

Sculpture is an act of creating art, and a philosophy on living. It is my belief that my artwork follows some means of a universal law I call “Creation and Beauty.” Stated simply, there is no doubt a responsibility inherent toward created forms. It’s quality, it’s energy, and the messages released through my actions are expressions that I work toward being aware of. This is the first thing I concern myself with before I step into my studio and stand before the set block of clay on any given day.

A quality sculpture has to be a product of spiritual, mental and technical abilities. Great works of art should possess deep roots in human spirituality, as well as depth regarding thought and feeling. Artwork can appear as fleeting inspirations or a belabored process based on the experience of the artist. In turn, if an artwork is created with the intention of lasting decades and being viewed for many generations, it has to be technologically strong and skillfully made.

Important thought is the search for quality. Quality, which is proportional to the amount of effort, must be made to the best of the artist’s ability. The Ancient Greeks used the word “arete”, while the Ancient Chinese called it “chung”. It seems clear that quality within a sculpture or any artwork is best when viewers are left with feeling happy, thoughtful, and inspired.
