Artist Statement:
The figurative sculptures I produce emanated from looking at decay in general terms. I have found the parallel in the decay of organic life a useful metaphor to depict the same process in the form of a figure. My commentary surrounds the fragility of existence and the human condition. I have explored this through posture and surface, trying to incorporate layers of meaning.
