While sculpture is conscious of permanence, I try to create installations that are temporary and reflect the nature of the material or object I am referencing, usually the constructed environment and its tendency to become detritus. Wood is my primary source of inspiration and my material of choice when building and sculpting. I typically use found wood, usually leftovers from a construction site or from an old backyard fence that has been torn down. By using materials from a specific place or site, my work automatically assimilates with that from which the materials originate. In a way, the materials become an extension of life for the structure they once were, like a documentation of their passageway into another purpose.
