“I feel the I-beam is the modern international
symbol of strength”
My I-beam sculptures are a hybrid of abstraction,
minimalism, and figuration. I label them abstract
because they cannot typically be identified with any
material thing, minimal because of the controlled use
of the fewest lines, and figurative because of the relation
to human proportions.
The I-beam is the common denominator in my work.
The balance it strikes - between the rigid and the
flowing, the hard and the soft, the industrial and the
natural - plays down the structural origin and allows
each design to stand on its own merit, figurative and strong.
