While attending Sculpture Space I continued my ongoing exploration in various media of the spectacular and the impossible. Working primarily in wood sculpture I continued a body of work that investigates the cognitive ambiguity of our feelings, hopefully subjecting the viewer to a repertoire of psychological resources. With matter of fact aesthetic and parodies of reality, disparate elements such as a burnt played piano, a grandfather clock, a flock of thousands of stamped ink starlings, or a collaged swarm of fighting supermen extended and deepened my explorations.
