I have been building monumental-scale sculpture since 1992 and have been fortunate to exhibit and sell these to communities throughout the country.
My strategy to building large pieces has been to fabricate struts out of aluminum which are mitered and then connected at the ends with a prominent stainless steel bolting system. This approach is utilized in my smallest table sculptures as well.
I am essentially building sculptural drawings in space with a beginning and ending point to each piece. The sculpture can be read as a drawing or armature onto which the sculpture would be hung, or as a volume, creating over-all shapes that materialize at different vantage points.
The sculpture is most effective when walked around, inasmuch as it will constantly reformulate its material shape in the process.
My monumental sculptures have been sold to or exhibited in Providence, Rhode Island; Bridgeport, Connecticut; Ft. Lauderdale, Vero Beach and West Palm Beach, Florida; San Antonio, Texas; Colorado Springs, Colorado; Fort Wayne, Indiana; Chicago and Flossmore, Illinois; the Milwaukee Riverwalk and Catalano Park in Milwaukee and Door County, Wisconsin.
I have done recent one-man gallery shows at Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago; and Bethel University, St. Paul, Minnesota.
